First montly update is 1851, and 1872 is supposed to be the first "big" update.  All significant years in Siemens history, but what happens when the significant years catch up to current times?

Everyone will be concerned about NX Y2K, but trust me - it'll all be ok

My personal feeling is Siemens can "pleasure themselves" whenever they want but keep it out of the software. 

 

They bought software that had been in development for ~30 years ~10 years ago and now they're dancing around like they invented it. 

 

Admin note: Vulgar comment

 

Edited to change 'masterb8' to "pleasure themselves" since apparently that was too much for delicate admin sensibilities

I can see it now, in 5 years...

In some sales/marketing meeting:

 

How can we confuse the users even more?

Oh, lets change the version number scheme to random klingon characters!

Yes, that's it!

Would it even need to be random?  Asking for a friend...

This is continuous deployment, the version numbers are not supposed to matter...

My NX automation code uses CICD (continuous integration, continuous deployment) using MS Azure DevOps and each release just gets a date/time stamp. No one cares.

May be when reaching the end of Siemens mile-stones in history, the version numbering will be changed to {four digit year}.{two digit month}: for example currently this would be 2019.01 (1847) or 2019.02 (1852).

Makes more sense and has some general meaning, that the customer can follow, too.

I had a completely different mental image of the sales/marketing meeting - more along the lines of in "Idiocracy"......

I think so, that way even the Klingons won't understand it ;-)

 

I agree with @Stefan_Pendl

Although perhaps just make the "dot" numbers a serial order :

2019.01 = first release in 2019;

2019.02 = second release, etc.  

 

Although there still remains how to distinguish "major" releases, so people realize it's not just a "monthly bug fix"?

 

Oh, maybe we could call it v33 (and 33.1, 33.2, ... then 34.1, 34.2...), and the license file would make sense again !
