What does the release version number mean?
Blackboard Learn uses a combined versioning schema for all deployments of the format: X.Y.Z-rel.abcdefg. Each of the digits and information in the versioning schema has a specific meaning.
- X – the first number in the schema represents the “major” Q2 or Q4 version for a given release. E.g. 3900 = Q4 2020, 3800 = Q4 2019, etc.
- Y – the second number in the schema represents the “minor” version for a given release.
- -rel.abcdefg – the last piece of information in the schema represents the specific build number for a release. This build number is only relevant for technical troubleshooting and internal Blackboard development systems, and can generally be ignored by most customers. Blackboard Support may request this build number for validation when clients submit support cases.
