Good point - there is no 1.4.0 tag in http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/tags/extensions/SemanticMediaWiki/

Oh, I see. I didn't realize that SMW uses branching; or that the numerical comparison was important.

By the way, assuming SMW does use branching, what is the SVN command one should call to get the stable 1.4 version? Someone asked about that on the SF mailing list yesterday.

The version number "1.5a" is just to indicate that this is, in principle, the
development version of SMW 1.5. This does not preclude further releases in the
1.4 branch. I am unsure what the best naming scheme would be. We usually used
<Nextmajorversion><Letter>, as in "1.4a". The advantage is that, using
standard version number comparison algorithms as in PHP, you have

1.4a < 1.4.0

Now the next logical thing would be to have a version between 1.4.0 and 1.4.1.
This would require a scheme like "1.4.0a", since "1.4.1a" > "1.4.1". Another
option would be to go back to write "1.4h" or something, but this does not
clarify that the version is post-1.4.0. Overall, I do not see a very pretty
solution here, but I can change the string in SVN according to proposals. One
option would be to really switch to a scheme where the post-release versions
are marked by appending letters (so it is 1.4.0a indeed, and something like
"1.4.0f" might become released as "1.5" when ready :-/).

As another remark, I add that the name "1.4.0" does not imply that "1.4.1" is
planned (even though, in this case, we intend a minor bug-fix update like
this). The reason for calling it "1.4.0" again is that

1.4 < 1.4a < ... < 1.4g < 1.4.0

If it was called "1.4" it would order before the devel versions that were its
predecessors.

Cheers,

Markus
