Use 'C' pattern to leave current value.

Would it be nice, if user could specify a pattern like C.C.J.B, and that would mean leave 1st and 2nd positions as they are, and only change 3rd and 4th.
So, developer of every assembly can control manually major and minor version independently of Build administrator.

Hi Yeti,

could you explain the benefit of having different major.minor versions per assembly?
I removed the version from all AssemblyInfo files and set "Force to Create Version".
How would "C" be replaced in such a case?

Thank you,
Ben

Hi Ben,
When one of the assemblies is plugin framework, that is to be referenced from every plugin developed by third party. You probably want to number the plugin framework differently from the rest of your software.

But the main idea is that developer manages version number, not a build administrator.

In the case when AssemblyInfo files are not present (StyleCop violation btw) having C specifier will produce error as if you had any other wrong specifier like REQBY in the version number.

Cheers,
Sly
