The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
0.0.1 is the first file saved by the softies. When the implemented features
work, this becomes 0.1.0. Then more features get added, 0.2.0
Then all the required features for the first release are ready, it goes into
QA, as (for example) 0.8.3
If this is the first iteration through QA, the internal number used by the
QA team becomes 0.8.3.1. Assume this gets rejected. Fixes are applied and
the new 0.8.3.2 gets released to QA. If this is accepted, it leaves QA as
Now, the product manager gets to accept it. If he does, the Release number
Version 0.1 is now ready for beta. Version numbers get updated, and software
"burnt" and distributed.
The results of the beta come back - not usable.
So the softies get 0.1.0 to save next time as 0.1.1. They end up with 0.1.3
which goes to QA. QA needs two passes, meaning 0.1.3.2 gets turned into
0.1.3 ex QA into Product Mgr. He accepts, 0.2 is released. This passes Beta
etc. 1.0 gets released.
------- NEW STAGE -----------
If new functionality is added, but the architecture doesn't change, future
releases will be 1.1, 1.2 etc. At some point the increase in functionality
will drive an architecture change, to force version 2.0 etc.

Subject: determining document version
Did some searching for this topic in the archives, but
didn't come up with anything. At which point do you
determine that your document has moved to a different
version? For example, when do you go from 3.3 to 3.4,
or from 3.3 to 4.0? Is there a set of standards that
has been published somewhere?
