Moodle Mobile is developed by a small team of three persons:
 
  
* Juan Leyva (Lead developer)

Moodle Mobile version numbers consist of three numbers separated by a dot, for example 1.3.2 or 1.4.4. The first two numbers, like 1.3, represent the major version. The third number distinguishes minor versions within the same major version.

The development process is oriented to:
 
- Maintain the current published version free of bugs
 
- Add new functionalities for future versions
 
  
For achieve this we organize the code using a Control Version System called git where we track two "branches" of code called:
+
* Major version includes new features and improvements.
* master - Branch for the code of new versions
 
* MOODLEMOBILE_XY_STABLE - Branch for maintain the code of the current published version
 
  
Every time we publish a new version (i.e: 1.4) we create a MOODLEMOBILE_XY_STABLE branch (MOODLEMOBILE_14_STABLE in this case) for maintaining this version until we release a new version; old branches are keeped as historic but we don't work on it.

* Minor version includes only bug fixes.
  
It doesn't makes sense maintain old versions because the way they are handled in Mobile markets (you can only upgrade to last version of an app)
