MacroGoblin Versioning Information
« on: October 17, 2007, 12:21:50 PM »
MacroGoblin Versions will be comprised of  4 numbers.   

[Major].[Minor].[SubMinor].[Revision]


Major Number Changes - Changes in the major number will occur upon very significant MacroGoblin feature upgrades, or enough Minor upgrades to warrant a Major Number change. This number can be any positive integer. New release notes will be provided when changes in this number occurs.

Minor Number Changes - Changes in the minor number will occur upon significant MacroGoblin feature upgrades, or enough SubMinor changes to warrant a Minor number change. This number will always be between 0 and 9. New release notes will be provided when changes in this number occurs.

SubMinor Number Changes - Changes in the the SubMinor number can occur when any MacroGoblin features are added. This number can be any positive integer. New release notes will be provided when changes in this number occurs.

Revision Number Changes - Changes in this number usually indicate a very small program update. Often times it will indicate bug fixes, or slight changes in the MacroGoblin program. This number can be any positive integer. Information on the change will be provided in the release notes of the SubMinor Number. Details about the revision change will be provided at the end of the SubMinor release note.


Summary:
This system allows MacroGoblin to be updated very often and very quickly when a bug is found. Bug fixes will not wait until the next SubMinor version to be released. They'll be released immediately.
