Version numbering for Web Gateway uses a particular numbering scheme for different types of product versions.
Beginning with MWG 8.0, versions are numbered like this:
- MWG 8.1 — Version with new features
- MWG 8.1.3 — Update
An update resolves issues that were present in previous versions.
- MWG 22.214.171.124 — Hotfix
A hotfix usually resolves an issue that occurred at a particular customer's site and is provided only to this customer.
Version groups and iterations
Three consecutive versions with new features are combined in a version group, which is given a code name. With regard to its group, a version is also known as iteration.

When a new version group begins, the first digit of the version number changes. For example, the Copper version group will be followed by the Zinc version group, which will include MWG 9.0, MWG 9.1, and MWG 9.2.
