We will be releasing new maintenance releases for the versions covered by the
new Security Bugfix Policy instead of binary patches.
Versioning of Releases
- PayMyVAT releases are versioned using a "double point" naming scheme. The
first digit in the release name represents a family of major releases. The next
digit represents a major release number, and the last digit marks the number of
the maintenance release. For example, version "3.2.3" is the third maintenance
release, of the "3.2" major release.
- Maintenance releases, e.g. 3.1.1, 3.2.2, are bug fix releases. These releases do
not change the external (plugin) API of their major release, and leave internal API
mostly unchanged. The changes in the API would only be introduced if they are
absolutely necessary to fix a bug. Therefore, plugins developed for a particular
major release should work for all minor releases that follow.
- Major releases, e.g 3.1, 3.2, will likely introduce changes to the internal API and
may affect external (plugin) API. Therefore, if an API that a particular plugin uses
has been changed, it is likely that the plugin will need to be tweaked for the new
major release. All changes to the external API are documented in the Upgrade
Guide of the release and in the Release Notes of each PayMyVAT release
