DGW Software Release Definitions

Starting March 26 2018, with the release of DGW 2.0.42, the numbering convention for the releases will change

To deliver requested functionalities faster to our customers, Media5 Corporation has decided to change its release cycle. This change implies a new numbering scheme for which three types of releases are being defined, i.e. Major GA, Minor GA, and Engineering load.

Major GA

A General Availability (GA) load has undergone intensive testing and validation. Most known issues identified during the testing and validation stages have been fixed, while the remaining restrictions are known and documented. The use made of Mediatrix products with a GA load must conform to product specifications and within the limits of reasonable environmental and network conditions.
Note: A Major GA may contain new features, behavior changes (other than bug fixes), design changes, and/or API changes.

Minor GA

A General Availability (GA) load has undergone intensive testing and validation. Most known issues identified during the testing and validation stages have been fixed, while the remaining restrictions are known and documented. The use made of Mediatrix products with a GA load must conform to product specifications and within the limits of reasonable environmental and network conditions.
Note: A Minor GA contains only bug fixes or trivial new features.

Engineering Load

An Engineering Load is suited for a pre-validation of a particular functionality only. Only a minimum set of upgrade and downgrade test cases were performed and no warranty that any other functionality than the goal of this load will work as expected. Should an Engineering Load cause a bad behavior of any equipment, Media5 declines any responsibility for such issues including ones that may conduct to recall of unit.

DGW Software Release Numbering Convention

Releases will be numbered as follows:

X.Y.B

  • X = Major (42, 43, 44...)
  • Y = Minor (0, 1, 2...) corresponds to the number of the minor version, 0 indicating that it is a major.
  • B = Build Number (incremental)

Engineering loads are numbered as follows X.Y.B-SSSSSS (where SSSSSS = an internal ID of variable length followed by an alphanumerical tag).

Old vs New DGW Software Numbering Scheme

Old Numbering New Numbering

DGW 2.0.[release].[build]

Where:

Release is a decimal number we increment on every GA release

Build is a decimal number we increase at every build

Example:

DGW 2.0.42.764 (load 42 major GA)

DGW 2.0.42.764-13-g819174abc (engineering load based on load 42 major GA)

DGW [major release].[minor release].[build]

Where:

Major Release is a decimal number we increment on every major GA release

Minor Release is a decimal number we increment on every minor GA release, reset to 0 on each major release.

Build is a decimal number we increase at every build.

Example:

DGW 42.0.764 (load 42 major GA)

DGW 42.1.779 (load 42 first minor GA)

DGW 42.1.779-13-g819174abc (engineering load based on load 42 first minor GA)
