The @version tag is used to denote the current version of Structural Elements.


@version [<Semantic Version>] [<description>]


The @version tag can be used to indicate the current "version" of Structural Elements.

This information can be used to generate a set of API Documentation where the consumer is informed about elements at a particular version.

It is RECOMMENDED that the version number matches a semantic version number as described in the Semantic Versioning Standard version 2.0.

Version vectors from Version Control Systems are also supported, though they MUST follow the form:

name-of-vcs: $vector$

A description MAY be provided, for the purpose of communicating any additional version-specific information.

The @version tag MAY NOT be used to show the last modified or introduction version of an element, the @since tag SHOULD be used for that purpose.
