@paulzdon I’m curious to know what best practices you’ve learned since posting this question a couple years ago. I just released my first font and am planning updates to it, so I want to make sure I handle versioning correctly.
I plan on keeping the same name, so my assumption is I can just increment the version number in Font Info and export the updated files. If the files have the same name then won’t they install correctly and all documents will reflow?
I’m aware that I might have to support some customers if they fall into caching issues, that’s fine. The version numbers would be super helpful in helping solve disputes between releases with customers.
As a side thought, I’m wondering the best way to handle documenting updates between versions on the development end. Maybe there’s a way to do that in Glyphs directly? I suppose I could keep a running separate spreadsheet with the Version number and notes about what was fixed and/or added? Just thinking out loud here.
