Subject Suggestions for Plugins / Shared Components
Date Fri, 06 May 2016 20:00:16 GMT
Hi to all,

I would like to suggest to keep the version number of the plugins and 
shared components to the following format (and may be also things we are 
using like plexus?):



So adding a new functionality which will not break the 3.0.X 
you can upgrade without breaking...for example:


now adding a new functionality which does not influence the older one 
should be:


So we should prevent changing it to:


So introducing a break in API must change the Major version and would 
look like this:

4.0.0 and 4.0

So consistently using a three number form Major.Minor.Patch ..
Othwerise it's not a clear line from the user perspective...At the 
moment we have the chance to make things better than in the past...


Kind regards
Karl Heinz Marbaise
