scrapli, and all scrapli related projects use CalVer versioning standard. All release versions follow the format YYYY.MM.DD, however PyPi will shorten/standardize this to remove leading zeros.

The reason for choosing CalVer is simply to make it very clear how old a given release of scrapli is. While there are clearly some potential challenges around indicating when a "breaking" change occurs due to there not being the concept of a "major" version, this is hopefully not too big a deal for scrapli, and thus far the "core" API has been very stable -- there are only so many things you can/need to do over SSH after all!

Please also note that the CHANGELOG contains notes about each version (and is updated in develop branch while updates are happening), and the "public" API is documented here, and includes the date/version of each public method's creation as well as the latest updated/modified date and any relevant notes.

A final note regarding versioning: scrapli updates are released as often as necessary/there are things to update . This means you should ALWAYS PIN YOUR REQUIREMENTS when using scrapli!! As stated, the "core" API has been very stable, but things will change over time -- always pin your requirements, and keep an eye on the changelog/api docs -- you can "watch" this repository to ensure you are notified of any releases.
