Supported versioning specificiations and format
Supported versioning specifications and formats
Magento software versioning policy complies with these widely used specifications:
Stable release versions are in the format
MAJOR indicates incompatible API changes
MINOR indicates backward-compatible functionality has been added
PATCH indicates backward-compatible bug fixes
The pre-release version format is:
MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH-<alpha | beta | rc>n, where
rc are stability indications, as described in the
version_compare() specification, and
n is an increment number to distinguish releases of the non-stable versions.
If you are an extension developer, familiarize yourself about the types of code changes that will initiate a MAJOR-, MINOR-, or PATCH- level change.
