Version number policy


Version number policy

Hi folks!


Magento has recently told me to download and install two security patches, which I did. While it's great to be notified early, I noticed that the version number in my admin panel still says (I'm using CE).


My question is: will these patches result in a version number increase? I ask because it's nice to know at a glance whether my Magento installation is fully patched and up-to-date. With most of the other software and tools I use (PHP, Symfony, Django), a security patch is always accompanied by a increased version number.

Re: Version number policy

The patch itself should not change version number. I just tested this on another site a few minutes ago.


We're updating dozens of builds for customers .. so this is top of mind for us.
