Handsontable follows the principles of Semantic Versioning (opens new window) (SemVer).
We use the version format of X.Y.Z (Major.Minor.Patch), incrementing them when a certain type of change occurs to the code.
The following table outlines which number would change when a Major, Minor, or Patch release occurs:
|Major||X (X.y.z)||Any backward-incompatible changes are introduced to the public API.|
|Minor||Y (x.Y.z)||New backward-compatible functionality is introduced to the public API, or if any public API functionality is marked as deprecated.|
|Patch||Z (x.y.Z)||Backward-compatible bug fixes are introduced. We define a bug fix as an internal change that fixes an incorrect behavior of Handsontable.|
Versioning of framework variants
Up to Handsontable 8.3.2, each framework variant of Handsontable was versioned separately:
Starting with version 8.4.0 (released in May 2021), all framework variants of Handsontable have the same version number.
