The project has adopted the Semantic Versioning spec from v2.2.0 onwards to maintain an understandable backwards compatibility strategy.

The version format is as follows:

  • An increment of the major version represents incompatible API changes.

  • An increment of the minor version represents additional functionality in a backwards-compatible manner.

  • An increment of the patch version represents backwards-compatible bug fixes.

  • Existence of a label represents a pre-release or build metadata.
