2. 1. Updating

OpenGrok uses semantic versioning and the version components further indicate more details about updating to newer version. The version scheme is major.minor.micro and change in any component is interpreted as:

  • major - major backwards incompatible update
  • minor - full clean reindex of your repositories is needed (e. g. index format has changed)
  • micro - redeploy web application

Generally it is possible to go backward only within the micro version.
