A new version of GeoDataHub is currently released every 3 month. The version naming is <year>.<zero-padded sequential number>. So the fourth release in 2020 is version 2020.04. This is released in end December 2020 at the end of Q4. Development releases are appended with the number of changes since the latest major release. As such, 2020.04.13 is the development version of 2020.04 with 13 code changed compared to the 2020.03 release. The development versioning is unique for each plugin/platform. The major versioning is synced same across all platforms (QGIS, Python, API, etc) to ensure comparability. Backward comparability is maintained for some time in the API until users have upgraded to the latest version.



This release cycle introduced the user and permission management system that is a partial breaking change to the API. The map is updated and new QGIS and Python releases are expected in the start of January.
