Cheetah Versioning Scheme

Cheetahs current versioning scheme is subject to change.

Cheetah is currently using the Semantic Versioning (SemVer) Specification. To summarize it is like this.

Given a version number MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, increment the:

  1. MAJOR version when incompatible changes are made.
  2. MINOR version functionality in a backwards compatible manner is added or changed, and
  3. PATCH version when backwards compatible bug fixes are made.

Additional labels for pre-release and build metadata are available as extensions to the MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH format.

I intend to update Cheetah in a continuous manner rather than sitting down and developing a completely new version that is completely different than the previous one. Thus, the first(MAJOR) version number will likely never increase.

As such, the current versioning system is not really appropriate. A better, more appropriate versioning system for the manner in which Cheetah will be updated and improved would be to use the Calendar Versioning Scheme. (CalVer). Cheetah may switch to this versioning system at some point in the near future.
