2.1. Major versions

A major release has new A or B numbers in its version number, and generally contains a wide range of new features in addition to all defect fixes addressed since the previous major release.

Examples: version 11.0, version 23.2

You will need a new version of your license when upgrading to a new major version.

2.2. Minor versions

A minor release has the same and B numbers but a new C number in its version. If a minor version is released, it generally includes all defect fixes since the previous major or minor release, and potentially a small number of new features.

Examples: version 11.0.1, version 23.2.1

2.3. Revision versions

A revision may be released with a new D number in its version. A revision version is a replacement version for a major or minor release that generally incorporates a small number of high priority defect fixes.

Example: version, version
