Hi guys,

I’ve been trying to figure out how to get more organized with the names of item updates and I was curious how some of you do it.

I’ve seen that some stick to 1.0,2.0,etc but I’ve also seen that some use things like 1.2.3.1.15 :)) i’m just trying to get a bit more organized so any tip would help!

I usually use 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 etc when I add new features and 1.0.1, 1.0.2 etc for bugfixes

We do the same.

I use X.Y.Z also, except bug fixes always get rolled into a Z release and Y releases usually only happen when Z rolls over. X releases are complete rewrites (i.e. probably not able to migrate easily without starting over). See my item’s changelog in its demo for an example.

I do the same too! But when I have both new features and bug fixes, I’ll ignore the third part :D

Thanks so much guys, the advice is golden, especially from authors as highly regarded. Thanks for taking the time to answer this. I’ll probably adapt the same method because it’s sounds much more organized and well thought than what I have now.

Cheers

Also, be sure to have a look at semver.org.

It’s a nice guideline on versioning software. :)

1.x- major update, critical bug fixes, new features.
1.x.x – small update, simple bug fixes.
from 1.x to 2.x – again, a major update but here we talk about a really big update, bug fixes, new features, code review, etc.
