Acceptable version format after beta channel shutdown


#1

I received a mail "Removal of beta versions on addons.mozilla.org"
And I was introduced to create beta versions on my own repository.

Well then, what will be the acceptable version strings?

  • Is SemVer acceptable, like 1.0.0-a.1?
  • Or, still toolkit version format, like 1.0.0a1?
  • Or, only chrome compatible version strings, like 1.0.0.1?

Please clarify.

We still support the toolkit version format. I suggest you refrain from uploading versions that can be detected as beta until we completely remove the feature.

That is actually not completely true, see https://github.com/mozilla/addons/issues/629

In short there are limitations compared to the raw toolkit version format.
