Software Versioning Schema

Microvellum Software Versioning Schema

When it comes to the version or build number of your software, what is important is knowing whether or not the build you are running is the most current, and having a clear understanding of the features available in the software build. We’ve made some changes to our build numbering schema to reduce the confusion and help you stay informed. 



As of February 3, 2020, our software build numbering schema is as follows:

  • Platform: The latest AutoCAD platform supported by the build. Note: Microvellum Software is supported on 2021, 2020, and 2019 AutoCAD platforms. The platform number reflects the highest AutoCAD platform supported (for example, AutoCAD 2021 would not be supported by a platform "20" build).
  • Platform ID: An incremental number that is linked to the Platform and Build Date. If the Platform spans more than one calendar year, the Platform ID will increment to 2, 3, etc. In a normal development cycle, the Platform ID should not exceed 2.
  • Build Date: A calendar date referencing the day the software build was made.
  • Supported OS Bit: Identifies the supported operating system bit type, either 64-bit or 32-bit (otherwise known as “x86” or “86”).
  • Build ID: The Build ID increments when more than one build is created on the same day.
By putting a focus on the supported platform and calendar date, we can maintain meaning in our software builds and better communicate the nature of the changes made within our software.
