A Game of Thrones • A Song of Ice and Fire NWN2 Persistent World • Low Magic Role Play


Sunday, 31 August 2008 18:00

Exciting things are on the Game of Thrones horizon. Today marks the announcement of our very first roadmap and the announcement of the first, of hopefully many, developments for our project.

This document seeks to explain the version numbering schema used by our team and to provide a roadmap that outlines in broad, chronologically contextual terms the development path of GoT for the foreseeable future.

Version Numbering Convention

Our release versioning follows a numerical convention comprised of three numbers: Major, Minor and Maintenance. The version is presented in the major.minor[.maintenance] format.

  • Major Release Number (x.1.1)

An increment of the major number generally indicates a major rework or rewrite of the code base or introduction of new, game altering content (custom 2DAs, custom systems, etc).

  • Minor Release Number (1.x.1)

An increment of the minor number usually indicates a significant change to software functionality or architecture or introduction of new, non-game altering content (enhancements to existing systems, new areas to explore, etc)

  • Maintenance Release Number (1.1.x)

An increment of the maintenance number usually indicates bug fixing within the minor release and possibly small enhancements and limited new features.
