Description (last modified by Piotrek Koszuliński)

We should tag our releases using Semantic Versioning (, because:

  • it's becoming a standard,
  • some tools (like may have problems with our non-standard tag names.

Places which we should change:

  • tags in all repositories,
  • CKEDITOR.version,
  • other places related to code and development, but not guides, blog posts, etc.

Hey did you know that the lack of predictable version numbering is causing difficulties configuring your library? See this long running thread over at Drupal Org.

Agreed... all "computer readable" stuff should use Semantic Versioning. This touches git tags, CKEDITOR.version, etc.

In the other hand, "human readable" stuff can go with shorter versions. For example, CKEditor 4 or CKEditor 4.3. This touches blogs, social stuff, etc.

Starting with CKE 4.3.3 we've introduced semver compilant tags into ckeditor-dev, ckeditor-releases and ckeditor-presets repositories.
