Why are website version numbers important?
In the development of a website, it's common practice to make use of various software libraries, such as jQuery or Wordpress. The software is constantly being developed further in order to keep up with the latest requirements, improve security or to ensure the website remains compatible with different web browsers or operating systems.
To stay in touch, it's important to regularly check whether the software libraries are still up-to-date. To do this, you first need to know what the current version of the software is. In addition to the current software version number, you also have to be aware if a new release of the software is available, and if this new release is compatible with the current implementation. This information is generally stated in the release notes of the software update.
