Where can i see that my update to backlight release 4 is well executed

Hi,

I just found the time to update to backlight+pages release 4. I've done everything as usual, but when i cleared cache, i saw backlight 1.2.3 . Shouldn't there be 1.2.3.4 ? Thanks in advance to let me know if everything is ok as it is.

Our versioning system doesn't go beyond major, feature and minor updates (e.g. 1, 2, and 3), so you won't see anything other than 1.2.3.

Our rationale for sticking to minor version numbers in this way (rather than moving to 1.2.4, the finest-grained version update we could make) is that incrementing the version number alone has a significant overhead in file changes, and therefore in packages that our customers would need to re-upload.  It's a big ask to expect our customers to upgrade so many packages over and over again.  With that overhead comes the inevitable issues of user error across our customer base.  We don't think that risk is worth it for such minor updates.

I should add, if you do want to see that the files have uploaded correctly, look for a file called module.xml under one of the updated modules, e.g. at a location like:

http://yoursite.com/backlight/modules/pangolin-album/module.xml

The version number should state 1.2.3.4.

Thank you Ben, I'm OK :-)
