Release creates a version string for all of your environments. It consists of the version of your default config + the version of your environment-specific config. The environment version looks like this:
v2.4. We think of the defaults version being the "major" version number and the environment-specific versions being the "minor" version number. You can see this version string in a number of places which we'll go through below.
The default environment configuration's version is the first number following the
v. Whenever you save either the environment configuration or the environment variables the major number will increment. When you view a particular environment it will be the first part (or the "major number") of the overall version string.
The overall version for an environment is concatenation of the default config version that your specific version based on, and the currently deployed version of the specific configuration. The version appears in a few different places in the environments section:
When you click into an environment and view its details you will see two versions that may or may not be the same. Whenever you save the configuration or the environment variables for the environment (this is the same for the default config and default environment variables too), Release will increment the minor version number and show you that you haven't deployed the latest configuration.
