The documentation uses the following terminology to refer to PopClip releases:
PopClip versions are presented in the form
version string (build number), for example
2023.7 (4151), with the following meaning:
Production releases: Production releases of PopClip have a version string in the form
2023.7, corresponding to when the version was released. In case of multiple releases in the same month, a third number is added, e.g.
Beta releases: Beta versions have version strings such as
Build 4151which are not related to the release date.
Build number: The number in parentheses after the version string is the build number, which precisely identifies the release. It always increases monotonically, so a higher build number means a newer release.
Build number anomaly
The build number is consistent across all editions and release channels, except that the Mac App Store edition build number is always 1000000 higher than the other editions. For example, version
2023.7 (4151) of the Standalone Edition is the same version as
2023.7 (1004151) of the Mac App Store Edition.
