CobbleStone® Software’s Contract Insight application release notes are meant to assist our clients and users in obtaining a high level or overview understanding of the new features, enhancements and issue resolutions associated with each released version of the application.
Version Numbers, Segments & Types
The initial questions most users ask are:
- What exactly do the version numbers mean?
- What does the release type mean?
CobbleStone® Software’s development of Contract Insight follows an industry standard for naming and numbering consisting of three (3) segments of numbers, separated by a period. When a new release is deployed, its release type is determined based on what changes, enhancements, issue resolutions or new functionality is included with the new release.
Below is a breakdown of the release version number and release type with these items in mind.
1 First Segment:
The first segment represents the system or application number. This number only changes if there is a major overhaul to the system or application on a whole.
A release altering this segment is an upgrade release type.
2 Second Segment:
The second segment represents a new major functionality release. This number only changes if there is new functionality or major enhancements to multiple areas of the system/application.
A release altering this segment is an update release type.
3 Third Segment:
The third segment represents the patch number. This number changes with each new patch. The patch refers to targeted enhancements and issue resolutions.
The rev (revision) represents the hotfix. This changes with each hotfix. The hotfix refers to security updates and issue resolutions.
