As we announced earlier, with this release we’re changing the versioning scheme and moving away from one “major” release per year to several “equal” releases per year. Also, we’re aligning releases and version numbers across all products under JetBrains Toolbox. The new versioning will follow the format “YYYY.R” where yyyy represents the year, and “r” the release within that year.
