I remember talking to Markus about this, and he said the current numbering system, confusing as it is, is there so that PHP's version_compare() function can work correctly - apparently it just does an alphabetical sort on the values.

Hey,

I'd like to change the format of the SMW version notation, as I think the current one is rather confusing. This change would be made after 1.5.1 has been released.

Current format: 1.5.1 ... 1.5.1.a-SVN ... 1.5.1.b-SVN ... 1.5.2
Proposed format: 1.5.1 ... 1.5.2 alpha 1 ... 1.5.2 alpha 2 ... 1.5.2

Does anybody have objections to this?

Cheers
