Version Number Format

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

Is there a standard that developers use when setting version numbers? I often see a version number with the following format "#.#.#.#". Could someone explain how this is used or point me in the right direction.

Thanks

I think it's something like version.edition.???.build#

I just don't know what the third one is.

Version# changes = major code change

edition# changes = bugfix/minor code tweak

???# changes = ???

build# changes = used mainly for betas, code additions, tweaks, etc....

Edit: Spelling errors corrected.

It's my understanding that version number follow this format major.minor.build

I'm not aware of a fourth item, not saying there can't be one though. :)

version.major.minor.build

minor can be not so minor but not as high as major. that's the reason when we switch from 3.0.102 to 3.1.0

You can ignore the build number which is mainly use during beta phase :)
