Version numbers

The Application version is always visible at the very top of the main application window. It consists of 4 numbers separated by dots, Example: 3.3.2.15, following the pattern below:

[major].[minor].[maintenance].[build]

which mean the following:

  • [major] -The leftmost number or the first is called the major version. it rarely changes – only when significant features are introduced to the software.

  • [minor] - The second digit changes whenever we release a new version with planned improvements, or any additional functionalities are added (see release notes).

  • [maintenance] - digit in the third position will change only when there is a software release that was not originally planned. Usually happens when an important fix is added and cannot wait for the next minor version change.

  • [build] - A build is a set of changes to the software or its minor update, UI changes, fixes, or improvement. This includes fixing security vulnerabilities and other bugs and improving the functionality, usability and performance.
