For folks who've purchased and downloaded extensions from Magento Marketplace, are the module's there using semantic versioning? i.e. -- do the third party modules have a require section in their composer.json files that lists out the Magento components the third party module needs in order to work correctly?

I realize this is going to vary by vendor, but I'm trying to get a feel for how widely used the feature is.

  • Of the three vendors I've used on my current project (Unirgy, Xtento [the only one through Marketplace], Fooman) only Fooman has instructions for composer - and involves a zip file into the vendor directory. None mention SemVer as far as I've seen. – Navarr Aug 15 '16 at 21:57
  • Actually, lots of developers do. – Valery Statichnyi Nov 4 '16 at 16:27

Sounds like the answer to this one was "no, most extension vendors are not using the semantic versioning system".
