Code changes
Major changes Result in a bump of major version (x.0.0). Upgrades to a new major version may require a rewrite of interfacing software, or significant changes in workflow.
Minor changes (incompatible) Result in a bump of minor version (x.y.0). Typically used when application names or command-line options change in a minor way.
Minor changes (compatible) Result in a bump of maintenance version (x.y.z). Typically used for bug fixes or new, compatible features.
