The version to be incremented when the release includes many large new features.


This can only be set in the IDE, but you can read the value in your code.

Typically version numbers are written as (MajorVersion.MinorVersion.BugVersion.NonReleaseVersion).

This value appears in the Properties window of the Desktop Explorer on Windows but does not appear in the Get Info window on MacOS or on Linux.

On Windows valid values are between 0 to 255.

Sample Code

Var fullVersion As String
fullVersion = app.MajorVersion.ToString + "." + app.MinorVersion.ToString + "." _
+ app.BugVersion.ToString + "." + app.NonReleaseVersion.ToString.
