Version Numbers Great Idea

While doing my morning browse for new ideas I came across a great post at Spindrop about Version Numbers and how to include very pertinent information inside of them.

On the otherhand if version numbers incorporated a date, we’d be set. If I told you I was using 1.0.20050405 of a piece of software and I was experiencing problems, you’d wonder why I hadn’t upgraded to something newer. If something newer didn’t exist, you’d question if development has stopped.

    it seems so obvious…

    and if they happen to release two a day then you just have 1.0.20050405.02 😀
