Beginning in March 2020, AppDynamics will switch to “Calendar Versioning” for the entire product suite to help you easily understand the length of support, compatibility, and stability of any release.
This means that the calendar-based format will incorporate the date of release into the version number. The convention will be as follows: yy.m.x (e.g., 20.3.0 for a March 2020 release) rather than in an x.y.z format (e.g., 4.5.18). These changes will be reflected on our downloads page.
The switch doesn’t impact your current versions and won’t require you to upgrade. Releases will remain generally backward and forward compatible.
