    I was just wondering how you guys use versioning in development?

    There are four categories to the versioning (at least in vb.net): Major; Minor; Build; Revision.

    To me, Major is any release that is substantially different from the original. This would indicate a period where you added in screeds of new functions, etc. I think this view is fairly standard.

    Beyond that, I lose my way really. So I was just wondering how others use it, and what quantifies a major/minor/build/revision change.

    I think most places, at least externally, only use Major and Minor versioning. As you mentioned, Major versions are releases that contain substantial features. Minor versions would include bug fixes and minor enhancements, and very little new features. Build and revision are often using internally.
