How versioning and upgrading impacts Spartacus project?
Spartacus follows the proven major.minor.patch versioning scheme. At the time of writing this the current version is 3.4.0 released on the 16th of June 2021. According to the Spartacus team new major versions are expected to be released roughly every 6 months, minor versions every 6 weeks and patches as needed, possibly even weekly.
Spartacus claims to be fully upgradeable and that’s one of the main differentiators to Accelerators. Upgrading may, however, turn from an option to a necessity since there is no explicit guarantee that older version will contain important bug fixes. Officially the Spartacus team only supports the most recent release so if you want to apply an important patch, you might end up having to upgrade to a newer major or minor version.
