For this 1.0.0 release and beyond we’re planning some significant changes on how we do versioning for the project.
We’re sticking to the de-facto standard of
patchlevel, mostly know as Semantic Versioning, or just semver.
During the early days of the project, we started following the JBoss Project Versioning - at that time our assets were mostly Java. Then we found out later that we were doing it wrong, because we forgot the timestamp part of the milestone releases.
So we’re going to release 1.0.0 in a few days, and we’ll drop the suffixes and work with versions like this:
patch(1.0.0 -> 1.0.1)
Bugfixes and minor changes: keeps API compatibility
minor(1.0.1 -> 1.1.0)
Small breaking changes means that some work may be needed for updating beetween minor versions.
major(1.1.0 -> 2.0.0)
Mostly backward incompatible changes and/or when a group of big features is ready.
Any release can use the discriminators .alpha/.beta/.pre for testing, those are sorted right.
