mVersion, v1.0.1 (c) 2011 by Michael Schmeing

The mVersion package is an easy way to keep track of different versions of your document. It provides a counter that can be incremented each time you compile the document. By displaying the counter on each page, (e.g. with the \textsf{hyperref}-package) you can see which of two versions is the newer one.

The version number is considered to consist of two parts which are separated by a dot. The first part is a fixed string that can be set by the user with |setVersion|. The second part is the build number which can be incremented by calling |increaseBuild|. The command |version| prints the complete version number, e.g. 0.1.334 with  0.1 being the fixed version number and 334 the build number.

mver­sion – Keep­ing track of doc­u­ment ver­sions

The pack­age en­ables the user to keep track of dif­fer­ent ver­sions of a LaTeX doc­u­ment. The com­mand \ver­sion prints the ver­sion and build num­bers; each time you com­pile your doc­u­ment, the build num­ber is in­creased by one.

By plac­ing \ver­sion in the header or footer, each page can be marked with the unique build num­ber de­scrib­ing the progress of your doc­u­ment.
