Versioning Scheme

AutoArchive version has form X.Y.Z, where X is the major, Y is minor and Z the bugfix version number.

A major version is released when all features for it are implemented. When it happens X is increased and other numbers are set to 0 (e. g. from 0.14.5 to 1.0.0). No new features are being added to that version anymore, only bug fixes. The version is supported until the next major version is released.

After a new major version is released the development of the next one starts. It has the same major version number (X) as current stable, however the minor (Y) is greater than 0 and is increasing (e. g. after 1.0.0 is released, the development of 2.0.z starts with version 1.1.0).

This is how releases may look like:

0.0.0, 0.0.1, 0.1.0, 0.2.0, 0.2.1, 0.2.2, 1.0.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3, 1.0.4

Generally, increasing X or Y means that new features were introduced. They may bring incompatibilities with previous releases (such as change of the configuration file format and so on). A migration may be necessary after the update.

Increasing Z means that only bugs were fixed and the release is compatible with the previous one. Update is seamless, no migration is necessary.
