Software Version Number Changes

The format of the version number used to identify the EFILive software has changed. The significant numbers in the software version are the first three numbers: Major.Minor.Release. The fourth number, (Build) is no longer used for anything other than tracking the actual build number and some minor internal version management.

Compatibility between *.exe and *.dll files is now determined by the Release number not the build number.

  • The Major number will be updated when a major new software version is created.
  • The Minor number will be updated if/when file formats and/or compatibility are changed.
  • The Release number will be updated whenever a new release is made available - which includes beta releases and release candidates.
  • The Build numbers will increment independently for each *.exe and *.dll in each of the EFILive software packages.
