[10/29/07]: This document is a draft. It has not been approved by the DTP PMC and should not be taken as DTP policy.

Introduction

This document specifies plug-in versioning rules for DTP. That is, a policy for changing plug-in version numbers based on the types of changes made to the plug-in is specified below. We follow generally accepted Eclipse rules in this area, for example the versioning policy for the Eclipse platform. It is important that all DTP committers adhere to this policy so tools (such as Eclipse Update Manager) and DTP users can determine the types of changes present between two versions of a given plug-in.
