If you need a version numbering scheme, try this:

  • 1.0alpha0, 1.0alpha1, 1.0alpha2, 1.0alpha3, 1.0alpha4,…
  • 1.0beta0, 1.0beta1, 1.0beta2, 1.0beta3, 1.0beta4,…
  • 1.0rc0, 1.0rc1, 1.0rc2, 1.0rc3, 1.0rc4, …
  • 1.0.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3, 1.0.4

For best results, maintain a stable and an unstable version in parallel and when the unstable one hits rc, start on the next alpha. This gives users the choice between boring stability and exciting crashfulness.
