How to get the release date from the version number?
Each release of our products has a version number based on the date of release, for example, 2020.6.
This number tells us the date of release.
The first number is the year of release. The second number is the month of the release.
In the example above the release was June 2020.
Previous Version Numbering
Older versions of our software used a different approach to version numbers matching the pattern X.Y.Z
X is the number of the last major release. For instance, JPedal version 8, which was released in April 2018.
Y refers to the number of months since the last major release. For instance, JPedal version 8 was released in April (the 4th month) of 2018 so you can add 4 to the second number to get the month of the release. (e.g. 8.1.25 was released in May). In 2019 you would need to minus 8 from this number, and in 2020 you would need to minus 20.
Z is the day of the month of the release.
For example, 8.1.25 was released on 25th May 2018.
