Ape Version Control Method

What do the numbers in the version mean?

The versioning system used by Ape Software makes use of all four place holders in the standard Major, Minor, Build, and Revision system.

Using the sample version of 7.5.9.2 . . .

  • 7 (Major): Primary purpose to introduce new major functionality.
  • 5 (Minor): Mainly introduces new Minor functionality and resolve bugs that includes a database structure update.
  • 9 (Build): Same as a Minor release (above) but does not include a structure update for the database.
  • 2 (Revision): Usually a private release during internal testing or a quick release to address individual user issues (e.g., bug fixes).

Even though a Major or Minor version are primarily used to introduce new major or minor features respectively, Ape sometimes may increment these versions when their sub-versions become double-digit numbers.

Update Notifications

Software produced by Ape includes an auto notification system that tells users when a new version is available.  All Major versions will trigger an auto notification while Minors and Builds usually trigger the notification.  If Ape believes the change released affects only a small number of users, Ape will notify those users directly and will not trigger the update message.

Note that while the default reminder frequency is daily, registered users have the ability to change the reminder frequency to weekly or monthly.
