This FAQ applies to:

Question:
How does Clavister's version numbering system work?

Answer:
There are three types of releases, these consists of three columns of two numbers, 11.20.01 as an example.
  • The first two numbers (11 in this example), is a so called LTS (Long Term Support) release. This release is a major release that will be supported and maintained for a minimum of four years after the release. There will be a LTS release every second year, meaning that there will be two LTS versions supported and maintained at all times. Every second year the number will increment with one, from 11 to 12 then 12 to 13 and so forth.

    NOTE: The first version (11.00.xx) is the so called LTS.
  • The second column of two numbers (.20. in this example), is a Feature Release. This is a minor release with new features and improvements to existing features as well as security enhancements. This release type, just as the LTS will increment with one every time a new release is released, so from .20 to .21 from .21 to .22 and so forth, just the same as the LTS. The Feature releases will however only be released to the newest LTS, so for example, if we have 11.00.00 and 10.00.00 as LTS’s the feature release will only be implemented to 11.00 and not 10.00.
  • The last column of two numbers (.01 in this example), is a Maintenance release. The Maintenance release often contains smaller improvements to existing features and defect corrections. There are rarely any new features implemented with the Maintenance release, as the features are implemented with the Feature releases. This type of release, just as the other two will increment its number with one each release from 01 to 02 from 02 to 03 and so forth. The Maintenance release will be implemented to both of the LTS versions that is active and the latest Feature release.
NOTE: Once a new Feature release has been released, the previous Feature release will stop being supported, meaning that there will no longer be any maintenance done on that release version. This also applies to Maintenance releases, once a new release has been released, the last one will not be updated any more.
