I don't see much of that anymore. AFAIK, the recommendation is to use a float with 6 decimal places. You should highly consider your module for semantic versioning.

I never saw anyone mention "semantic versioning", and I think I know why, its absolute nonsense :) I can't tell if the idea has merit, its too hard to parse (compare to compare to ).

All I can say is, whatever numbering scheme you adopt, make sure the documentation renders the number redundant information. Note important changes in the docs and in some kind of CHANGES file.

    Of course you can't tell the merit, you didn't parse it! :) Versions are versions, something you keep bumping up over time to show progression/improvement. Corporations try to make them look sexy.

    Semantic versioning is a recommendation if you haven't made up your mind yet for the format of your software version. In it, the numbers try to tell what changed in your software's public API.
