I often receive questions about software versioning. Although it seems something trivial and simple, when people start thinking about it, several questions pop up: How can we uniquely identify our software? Which versioning scheme should we use for our software? Which version of the software is delivered to our test or production system? … With this post I hope to give some answers to these questions and provide some of the choices you have.
On the 7th of November 2017, a new version of The Scrum Guide is released by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland. Since most of us are working in an agile/scrum environment, it is good to take a closer look at the changes that were made to the guide. Per section I will try to highlight the major changes. You can also look at the revision history of the guide itself where the changes are listed. The revision history of the guide only mentions the high level changes, but more textual changes are made to the guide than mentioned in the revision history.
