Decoding GADS OS Version Numbers

by ronfluegge 8. August 2015 11:49

The GADS OS software uses a version numbering scheme composed of four sets of numbers.  Here's how to decode it!

          {major version number}●{minor version number}●{build number}●{update number}

The first number is the major version number, and it refers to the year the particular version of the application was compiled (e.g., 15=2015,14=2014, etc.).

The second number is the minor version number, and it refers to the month the particular version of the application was compiled (1-12).

The third number is the build number, and it refers to the day of the month the particular version of the application was compiled (1-31).

The fourth, and last number, is the update number, and it is used to identify the update number if more than one compile of the source code is "released" on a given date (0,1,2,3,...). 

Therefore, if your version is shown as 13.4.15.0, then your version was compiled on 4/15/2013 and was the first released (0) version on that date.

So, there you go…  You now know how to read GADS OS's version numbers!
