New nomenclature for RUDDER versions

RUDDER is in continuous development: new versions are released at a steady pace. Until now, their historical naming was not so clear to all our users.

We have therefore decided to adopt a more accessible template, based on largely used standards. We were inspired by the nomenclature of https://semver.org/.

Since the 6.0 version, RUDDER is based on the following versioning semantics:

Version Example Description
Major 6.x.x Version with major innovations, greatly affecting the use of RUDDER.
Example: new RUDDER feature
Minor x.1.x Version with minor innovations, including all the security and stability fixes of the previous version.
Example: improvement or development of an existing feature.
Patch x.x.8 Corrective version of bugs and security issues.

As a preview of our major and minor versions, we release beta versions and RC (release candidates). They have an appropriate suffix, such as version 6.1.0~beta1.

We seize the opportunity of this announcement to also clarify the maintenance duration of these versions:

  • For the users without subscription, each major and minor version is maintained for 3 months. In this period, patch versions are released. It means that you have 3 months to upgrade your RUDDER instance to the next version.
  • For the customers with a subscription, a guaranteed maintenance and a larger upgrade window is offered. If this is your case, please contact us for more information. Find out more about the subscription.
This section allow you to modify the background image of the post template’s header.
