1.1.2. Versions

Another commonly used term is "product version" or just "version". For Docmenta different versions of a product are just different snapshots of the product documentation at different points in time. Furthermore, each version has a version-ID (e.g. "1.0") and a state ("Draft" or "Released"). A new version has initially the state "Draft", i.e. it can be edited. As soon as the state of a version is changed to "Released", the version is no longer editable. A new version can only be created as a copy of a released version. Following illustration gives an example of a documentation's version tree:
