Version Numbering Scheme
The Newt-Web version number takes this form: Version A.B-CCCC Built on YYYY-MMM-DD.
- A is the Major Version Number, incremented only when many new features are added all at once, or the program configuration is substantially changed.
- B is the Minor Version Number, incremented on every release. It is reset to zero
when the major version number changes.
- CCCC is the Edit Number. It is incremented every time the sources are modified,
which usually occurs many times before a release. It is never reset.
- YYYY-MMM-DDD is the build date, and is updated whenever the edit number changes
on a new day.
There is also a File Version number of the form A.B, used when the save file
version format changes, so that we can read older format files without issues.
