There's no guarantee there will be a new API version for every Ubuntu
release. There's also no necessary relationship between the version
numbers and the name of the first Ubuntu release to use it by default--I
think that would confuse more than it would help.
The only relationship between API versions and Ubuntu releases is that
we can't deprecate an API version until the EOL of the last Ubuntu
release to use it by default.
If you go to the apidoc index page on edge
(https://edge.launchpad.net/+apidoc/), it now shows a list of all the
active versions, and the description of each version shows the last
Ubuntu release to use it.
