Pulp uses a version scheme x.y.z, which is based on Semantic Versioning. Briefly, x.y.z releases may only contain bugfixes (no features), x.y releases may only contain backwards compatible changes (new features, bugfixes), and x releases may break backwards compatibility.

Plugin API

The plugin API is provided by the pulpcore package and is not versioned independently. x.y.z releases of pulpcore should provide backwards compatible releases of the Plugin API but x.y releases might bring backwards incompatible changes of the plugin API.

We expect the plugin API to eventually be Semantically Versioned so that only x releases of pulpcore will bring backwards incompatible changes to the plugin API. Until then, we recommend plugins pin to x.y releases of pulpcore.
