Re: Discussion: OK to change VTK's version number from 9.0 to 8.2?
I don't have any issues changing the version number from 9.0 to 8.2.
For the future, I would prefer a year.month naming scheme after you do that. At least yy.mm gives you a good clue as to when it was released. Furthermore it will make feature testing in versions easier.
I want to do this because it will let me make a release now to preserve what is in master. The larger scale changes we planned for 9.0 will happen shortly after that. 8.2 will and 9.0 may come out before the end of this year.
A topic for future discussion is whether we want to continue the existing, fairly haphazard naming scheme or move to something better, perhaps a year.month scheme like several other projects have moved to recently.
thanks for your advice
