A quick note about versioning in Blackbaud CRM and BBIS:

Blackbaud CRM follows a numeric versioning scheme to identify the latest software release and the type of update. The versioning scheme structure is the major release number, minor release number, security number, and build number, with each number separated by a period:  For additional information on how application changes determine changes to our builds, please review the Versioning Scheme section of our PA-DSS Implementation Guide.
