Hi everyone,

I'd like to hear some discussion about Etoys version numbers.   We've  
long relied on build numbers with rather weak major.minor version  

Moving forward, I'm in favor of the way iTunes does it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITunes_version_history    (scroll to  

In particular, we call generally major releases "Etoys 4" and "Etoys  
5", with the internal version numbers having the form 4.1.1.

We can still list the build number in the about, but I'm leaning  
towards not requiring users to even know what that is.

Also, I'd like to create a version history for Etoys that puts  
everything in context and shows that it's a mature product.  Both on  
the website and wikipedia, etc.

Etoys 3 is the OLPC one (with toolbar on top).

Where's the demarcation between Etoys 1 and 2, and Etoys 2 and 3?

Take care,
