Version Numbering
« on: January 28, 2009, 10:36:04 PM »
Open Web Messenger version numbers are composed of 3 integers named major.minor.service

major change indicates a new concept in the application
minor change indicates new features and/or interface
service change indicates fixed bugs

Version with zero service number is considered as public stable beta. Localization packages are issued for releases
with service number 1. Next service changes do not affect localizations.

Example:
1.5.0 had no localizations.
1.5.1 contains UI fixes/improvements and is localized
1.5.2, 1.5.3 uses the same localization packages as 1.5.1

Note, that localizations are upward and downward compatible. I.e. if you use 1.6 localization
on 1.5 or 1.4 it just works. Otherwise if you use 1.5 localization on 1.6 or 2.0 untranslated
strings are shown in english.
