What is the proper what of versioning (correct wording?) a game in development? Such as FredJumpsOnDog version 0.1 then FredJumpsOnDog version 0.2. How does this work?

    a good way to do it is to reverse the date as part of the filename and then add two numbers if you are versioning many times a day. This aids finding the most current version when listing in the opening file window.
    So you would have-

    Fredjumpsondog2011062802
    Fredjumpsondog2011062803
    Fredjumpsondog2011062901

    This is pretty east to remember and I have worked in a number of situations where it really helped.
