Version information#

The version information in maicos.__version__ indicates the release of MAICoS using semantic versioning.

In brief:

Given a version number MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, we increment the

  1. MAJOR version when we make incompatible API changes,

  2. MINOR version when we add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and

  3. PATCH version when we make backwards-compatible bug fixes.

However, as long as the MAJOR number is 0 (i.e. the API has not stabilized), even MINOR increases may introduce incompatible API changes. As soon as we have a 1.0.0 release, the public API can only be changed in a backward-incompatible manner with an increase in MAJOR version.

Additional labels for pre-release and build metadata are available as extensions to the MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH format, following PEP 440.


Development versions and pre-releases have a suffix after the release number, such as 0.7.0+12.gFEED2BEEF. If you have problems, try out a full release (e.g. 0.7.0) first.
