  • As of OXID eShop versions 4.7 and 5.0, we separated the version numbers for Community/Professional Edition and Enterprise Edition: CE and PE were versioned as 4.7 as EE got the version number 5.0 due to several reasons.
    With the series 6.0, we got rid of this segregation and unified the versioning for the different editions again.
  • As of OXID eShop 6, there are different components like OXID eShop core, storefront, several modules etc.
    These components, including the core, might have a totally different (semantic) version logic than the entire “compilation”, and they are usually located in different GitHub repositories.
    The advantage of this modus operandi is that the versioning of the compilation is more customer-oriented in terms of support/marketing and not bound to circumstances in development as it was experienced before.
