The developers most likely have an internal guide that they wish to follow that designates what determines an incremental patch update and that of a bigger more significant update. They may have something like this:

B changes when significant changes occur or a small set of prominent features are introduced
C changes when a bug fix or small change is introduced

v1.1.0but as an end user that does not disturb me. You should see the other forum I follow in which the dot number is a double digit yet a percentage of the users ignore the trailing zero and call it a single digit. For example the release is 1.20 yet they call it 1.2! Now that is frustrating.
Yep, we jumped a minor version because there are a number of breaking changes. Technically, if there are breaking changes, we should increment a major version number, but after lengthy internal discussion, we felt that such a jump (from v1.0.3 to v2.0.0) would incorrectly signify that a whole bunch of things had changed, when this was really more of a "maintenance patch + a bunch of new features" release.
