This RFC proposes to set the version number of the next MapGuide release to be 4.0


The volume of changes and features implemented so far is such that 3.3 is better represented as 4.0

The other motivation is that there is pending development work that will have "breaking change" ramifications for MapGuide Application Developers, so bumping the version to 4.0 will pre-emptively set such expectations.

Proposed Solution

Set the base version number in MapGuide to

Ensure that any doxygen content for APIs introduced in this development cycle are set to \since 4.0

Update all version references in code to 3.3 to 4.0

Update all version references in XML schemas to 3.3.0 to 4.0.0

All adopted RFCs thus far in this cycle will be retroactively updated to target the 4.0 milestone


Test Plan

Run existing test suite to ensure no breakages
