Releasing new software versions is quite different in the age of cloud & internet, compared to let’s say 10 years ago.
For the times they are a’changing, frePPLe will be publishing a new software release every 3 to 4 weeks.
We’ll also be adopting a semantic version numbering scheme and compile more detailed release notes. Release numbers will consist of 3 numbers: MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH.
In practice this means that after 4.3.0 the next release will be within a month and will be called:
- Major change: 5.0.0 if the behaviour or data model are changed in a backward incompatible way, i.e. an easy migration isn’t possible.
- Minor change: 4.4.0 if the behaviour or data model are changed, but an easy migration is available.
- Patch/incremental change: 4.3.1 if the new release only adds new features or fixes bugs, without impact.
