As an old warhorse, I’m struggling to keep up with the explosion in excellent tools available to ply this trade. Platform IO is a great example. It has imposed an order to version control that precludes a lot of potential problems with the fast pace at which all of this stuff is developed. One of the foundations of success for that is semantic Versioning
To that end I’m looking to adopt that version scheme for IoTaWatt. All of the dependency files that are used by IoTaWatt conform to this approach, and it makes sense as an open project that the versions adhere to this scheme as well.
This is probably going to take awhile, but I think it will really help the project going forward. Hopefully, I’ll have a basic website up soon and plan to incorporate a “read the docs” subdomain with this information. That will supplant the current WiKi on github and should allow for documenting multiple versions.
To make for a smooth transition, I plan to bump the “major” (highest order) digit for the first release, so probably it will be 3.0.0 and take it from there.
