Development Notes

Following section describes some of the development topics

Release Versions

Release versions are automated and based on Tags and Commit count from Tag using the git describe command

To test git versioning run

git describe

this will show you generated version message with latest tag and how many commits since tag.

If you get an error:

fatal: No annotated tags can describe

create or overwrite an existing tag with a message:

git tag 1.0 1.0^{} -f -m "initial tag"

Version Convention

Version numbers for Git Tags should follow semver format:

  • MAJOR version when you make incompatible API changes,
  • MINOR version when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and
  • PATCH version is automatically generated based on git commit count from last Tag

Please use MAJOR and MINOR version in Tags, PATCH version will be automatically added as a commit count since the last tag using the git describe.

Release history

Please review Versions for all version history
