Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: None
Fix Version/s: OpenMRS 1.5.0
Expanding on the work of
TRAC-631, we should adopt an optional pre-release modifier within our versioning syntax.
Currently, we use:
We should use:
where the -modifier is included for pre-release versions as dev, alpha, beta, or rc optionally followed by a positive integer to accommodate multiple pre-releases – e.g., 126.96.36.199-beta2.
|-dev||nightly build, for development purposes only (trunk would usually carry this modifier)|
|-alpha||development pre-release, not for public consumption|
|-beta||early release, may be used by beta testers|
|-rc||release candidate, not officially released but in final stages of testing, may be used by early adopters|
An alternative would be to use dev, a, b, or rc without the hyphen – e.g., 188.8.131.52b2.
