[feedback] What's V2.0.0???

Postby tvoneicken » Fri Jul 22, 2016 11:47 am

What does it mean that the latest SDK jumped from V1.5.4 to V2.0.0? Do you use semantic versioning? If so, which incompatible changes were made? If not, what is the significance? Was 1.6 too boring a number? Will there be continued support and patches for the v1.x series?

Hello,

Certain versions are internal and may not be released because there may not be significant changes, if that's what you meant to ask about missing version sequences.
We try not to make any changes that render code from past SDK versions unusable. Slight tweaking may be necessary, of course. For example, the configuration BIN files etc would be backward compatible. But some new functions may be added to new releases that must be called.

There will be continued support for recent SDKs, especially in case of major flaws. However, we highly recommend using the latest SDKs because they usually contain patches/fixes from past versions - that is why they are new releases. The changelog should make things clear anyway. :)

I highly recommend looking into semantic versioning. Seems like you're assigning version numbers randomly... The release notes are about as clear as mud, they only give a hint in which area something may have changed and don't really explain what.
