Versioning common sense (major.minor.patch) has a name: Semantic Versioning 2.0.0

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/17

I just discovered the versioning common sense I’ve used for decades actually has a name. It’s even a “standard”!

Semantic Versioning 2.0.0 Summary

Given a version number MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, increment the:

  1. MAJOR version when you make incompatible API changes,
  2. MINOR version when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and
  3. PATCH version when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes.

Additional labels for pre-release and build metadata are available as extensions to the MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH format.

I discovered it via:
