Are version numbers of plugins changing to match Piwigo versions?

Greetings,

I just went in to upgrade extensions before upgrading Piwigo to 12.1.0 and I'm seeing this:

Many extensions say the new version is 12a when their previous number scheme was quite different.

Is this a bug or  a new way of doing things. I've been off the forum for a while (no Piwigo problems, yea!!) but a quick look through recent posts doesn't mention anything about this.

It's just a "way" of versioning extensions.

Many extensions say the new version is 12a when their previous number scheme was quite different.

Not really. Only for a few of them. If the previous version was 2.9.b and the new one is 12.a, it's the same versioning system. "2.9.b" means it was released at the time of Piwigo 2.9 and it was the second revision.

Reminder : Piwigo went from 2.10 to 11. See the Piwigo 11 release notes :

Version jumps from 2.10 to 11

Goodbye version 2.11, welcome version 11! Back in 2008 we decided to rename PhpWebGallery into Piwigo and we jumped version from 1.7 to 2.0. It means we've been on version 2 for 12 years. Much longer than many other projects whole life. A version 2.10 or 2.11 does not reflect the huge work we've put into the redesign of Piwigo user interface, even if the technical backend did not change much. We want to make obvious we're bringing a lot of improvements with these versions. Maybe version 2.10 should have been a version 3, as some of the community members suggested. So it's time to review our versionning system. Let's jump from version 2.10 to 11.0!
