This page keep track of the official releases of the EFAS system, including its components. EFAS will be versioned with a three-number system X.Y.Z responding to major, minor or patch update of the system correspondingly. A major change is always followed by a new release of the historical simulations.
EFAS guidelines for versioning
|Major||Change in the output from EFAS that affects EFAS dissemination centre, ERCC or Aristotle. Characterized by a change in the LISFLOOD model output||Calibration, major changes to the physics. Can also be a major technical change.||Communicated 4 weeks before implementation. Associated with a period of testing for the users|
|Minor||Major technical change or minor change in the output.||New layer, new product, change of format, update of thresholds||Communicated 1 week before implementation|
|Patch||Bugfix or update of information in the system. Might affect post-processed layers, but have no impact on the model output.||Bug fix, update of layer names, minor technical updates||Are immediately released into production|
The version handling start from the release of the new domain on 16 May 2018. This marks the version "1.0.0". There was also a major new release on October 10 2019, resulting in the release of v2.0.0. The version 3.0.0 was released on 2019-05-13.
