New database versions and release scheduleby Chelsea C. Thomas on Nov 7, 2020
We’ve released new versions of the COMPADRE and COMADRE databases and made some changes to our version release schedule.
Going forward, database releases will be quarterly and on the 15th of the first month of the quarter. The 2021 release schedule follows.
January 15, 2021
April 15, 2021
July 15, 2021
October 15, 2021
In the event of major database updates, we may also release versions outside of the primary schedule.
The version numbering style will remain unchanged. All database releases will have a four-sequence identifier. The first sequence represents the major version, the second represents the two-digit release year, the third represents the release month, and the fourth represents the patch number (starting with 0) in the event a patched version is released mid-month.
Previous versions of the databases can be found here.
And as always, our users can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and feedback about the databases.
