According to Wikipedia, we talk about stages of development;
- release candidate
But, beta also have 2 sub-stages;
- perpetual beta
- open/closed beta
Now if we were to version a software with these and semver. It would look somewhat like this:
- prealpha: 0.x.x
- alpha: x.0.0-alpha.x
- beta: x.0.0-beta.x
- release candidate: x.0.0-rc.x
- stable: x.x.x
However how would these look if we want to differentiate between perpetual and open/closed beta?
Would this be allowed, and if yes would something like this work?
- perpetual beta: x.0.0-pb.x
- open/closed beta: x.0.0-ob.x, x.0.0-cb.x
