Software Versioning

Our software versioning follows the major.minor.development scheme.

  • A change in the major version number usually yields from fundamental changes in the KiRAT source code which rule out downward-compatibility with previous KiRAT versions.
  • The addition of new features and capabilities to the framework is accounted for by incrementing the minor version number.
  • A development version update is then caused by changes which are made in preparation for a minor version update or by changes which improve overall performance.

A more detailed list explaining our versioning scheme can be found in the table below:

Major   Minor   Development
  • No downward-compatibility to previous software version
 
  • Addition of a new functionality (operational)
  • Addition of an entirely new research branch
  • Significant changes in the GUI or software handling
 
  • Development phase of a new functionality, usually precedes a minor update
  • Improvements relevant to the framework as a whole (but no new functionality)

Wissenschaftsspaziergang

On Thursday, August 15th, we participated in the "Kiel Science Walk" (Wissenschaftssapziergang) that is organized by the city of Kiel. About 20 interested people visited us. First Dr. Frank Paul in his role as the manager of our institution gave a short talk about current facts and the history of our faculty. Afterwards, our real-time time system KiRAT as well as the some (theoretical) basics ...
