What about the new release numbering scheme?

Useful stuff for users and developers of the XML based dynamic publishing system "Arbortext".

Discussion posts to this group should be relevant to Arbortext users. Posts on other products or from vendors are welcome, so long as the post also mentions or includes Arbortext in the subject matter. General posts on dynamic publishing and posts from vendors other than PTC will be subject to higher scrutiny and should generally avoid posting here (especially if the referenced material does not mention Arbortext). Advertisement posts for other products (e.g., "check out my product as an alternative") are not welcome. This forum is for Arbortext users to communicate with other Arbortext users about working with Arbortext products.

What about the new release numbering scheme?

Maintenance releases, patch releases and double-dot releases (e.g., 5.2.1) are now all named with the "M" label such as 5.2 M010 (which would be pronounced "five point two em ten" or "em ten" for short). You install these releases on top of the F000 release (the initial release) or any M release that came out afterwards.

Regularly-scheduled (every 2 months) maintenance releases are incremented by 10, so our product calendar lists M010, M020, M030, etc. Maintenance releases always include bug fixes and sometimes add new features.

If special-purpose maintenance releases are required, we'll use the numbers in between. For example, there's an M011 patch release in the works that's targeted specifically to customers planning to install the 1.2 release of our SPL application.
