[edit] General Information

There are two types of eCl@ss Releases: A MajorRelease (e.g. eCl@ss Release 9.0) and a MinorRelease (e.g. eCl@ss Release 9.1).

An eCl@ss MinorRelease is a release type that includes the modification of certain attributes of existing structural elements (e.g. textual changes) and the addition of new elements that:

  • include additions (possible on all hierarchical levels), the removal of erroneous keywords and suggested property values and, if necessary the correction of them. For an overview please have a look at the list of valid change requests per release
  • are downwards-compatible within the same MajorRelease Number (e.g. all 9.x releases with each other, all 10.x releases with each other etc.)
  • can automatically be integrated into a system as an upgrade of the previous version as only version changes of existing structural elements and additions of new structural elements are made
  • are planned to be published once a year (see Release Roadmap)
  • are coded with the help of a MajorRelease Number and a MinorRelease Number (n.X, e.g. 9.1 - the first MinorRelease after MajorRelease 9.0)
