A version is a “named” snapshot of a single document. A name can be any of the following:
- number – 1.1,
- date – 2019-08-29,
- free text – First Draft,
and it may be complemented by a text note and/or labels.
The version only includes local content, not transclusions. A collection of documents can be “versioned” simultaneously and with the same name, but any version applies to only a single document.
Minor and major versions
Versions to be categorized as “minor” or “major”. This allows for the flexible management and release of documents. Major versions may be used as the trigger to publish externally but minor versions may be for internal review. For example, if the export ANT task
@version attribute is set to
"4.0", then content created after 4.0 will not be exported. This can prevent content being prematurely released.
A feature that allows a version to be set for an entire tree, or sub-tree, of documents in a single action.
