This page defines the OpenCue policy on version number changes and compatibility between versions.
OpenCue version numbers contain three components:
Major version will be incremented only by agreement of the technical steering committee (TSC). Major versions will be rare and the TSC will typically coordinate a list of new major features to be included. No compatibility should be assumed between major versions of OpenCue.
Minor version will be incremented for potentially breaking changes. Users should not assume compatibility between minor versions of OpenCue.
Examples of breaking changes include:
- Database schema changes, as an un-updated Cuebot running old queries may fail.
- Changes to the OpenCue proto files, as un-updated clients running previously valid API queries may fail.
Patch version to be incremented on every commit merged to the OpenCue
masterbranch. Patch versions with the same major and minor versions should be compatible with each other.
Developers and code reviewers should use their best judgement, but be prepared to revert a commit and re-submit it with an incremented minor version if needed.
