ICT development team standards / Version Numbers

Each release of an application (including UAT releases) should be given a version number. For applications that publish an API, Semantic Versioning should be used (http://semver.org/). For other applications, a similar scheme should be used, with

  • Major versions (X.0.0) meaning a major change to the application
  • Minor versions (0.X.0) meaning functionality has been added to the application
  • Patch versions (0.0.X) meaning bugs have been fixed without adding new functionality
