FYB Software Versioning - What does it all mean?

More Info
Ever wondered how FYB Software versioning works? Well we're here today to give you a brief rundown of each number and how they work, but first why 3 numbers?

The three numbers are important to clearly define the build, the numbers can be summarised as Major, Minor and Patch. FYB follow Semantic Versioning, as as part of this process, the version numbers and the way they change convey meaning about the underlying code and what has been modified from one version to the next.

The first number

This number represents a Major change and the following reasons define an increment of this number:

  • A major overhaul of the software has been completed
  • Significant interface changes
  • Significant functionality changes

The second number

This number represents a Minor change and the following reasons define an increment of this number:

  • A minor update has been made to the software
  • New features have been added or existing features have been enhanced

The last number

This number represents a Patch and the following reasons define an increment of this number:

  • A patch has been completed
  • Bug fixes
  • Very minor adjustments to existing functionality
  • Must not include any new features
With this new knowledge you can take notice of the version numbers when FYB Apps, Add-ins and Connectors are released to be able to understand the updates that were implemented.
