Release Definitions

For all PSIGEN products, the following terms define how Product Releases are categorized:

Major Release

A Product Release that contains product-wide visual or functional changes will be categorized as a Major Release. Major Releases are identifiable by a change to the first number in the Product’s version. A Major Release will always require a full install to upgrade from a previous release. 

Example:  PSIcapture 4.0 was the first Major Release following the 3.x product line.

Minor Release

Product Releases containing substantial new or redesigned functionality will be categorized as a Minor Release. Minor Releases are identifiable by a change to the second number in the Product’s version. A Minor Release will always require a full install to upgrade from a previous release. 

Example:  PSIcapture 4.1 was the first Minor Release in the 4.x product line.

Service Pack

Product Releases that represent a rollup of previously released Patches and/or contain updated third party components will be classified as a Service Pack. Service Pack Releases are identifiable by a change to the third number in a Product’s version. A Service Pack release will always require a full install to upgrade from a previous release. Service Pack releases will generally be scheduled for release at the end of each month, excepting those months where no significant updates to the product were required.

Example: PSIcapture 4.1.1 was the first Service Pack release in the 4.x product line.
