6.1. SIMP Version Guide
The SIMP versioning system has caused some confusion over time and this document serves as the authoritative reference for clarification.
6.1.1. Top-Level SIMP for 6.X+
This is the version number that you get when you run rpm -q simp
The top level SIMP version for SIMP releases from 6.0.0 onward will be following Semantic Versioning 2.0.0.
In short, this means (from the reference):
Given a version number
MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, increment the:
MAJORversion when you make incompatible API changes
MINORversion when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner
PATCHversion when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes
6.1.2. Sub-Component Versioning
For all versions of SIMP, sub-components generally follow Semantic Versioning 2.0.0.
