GitHub Semantics Versioning⚓︎

Demand analysis⚓︎

When we work as a team, we need to coordinate projects, or we also need to lower coordinate costs. Thus, we need to set some rules for it. SemanticsVersioning` is widely used in GitHub version control.

Semantics Versioning 2.0⚓︎



\(1.0.0 \rightarrow 2.0.0\)

For: API changes or when code contains breaking changes of API.


  • Amy changed the function of the API.
Breaking Changes

  • True: remove, rename sth.

\(1.0.0 \rightarrow 1.1.0\)

For: Change function signature, add new features, or add some functionallity. (no breaking change, no bug fix.)
