Software Component Lifecycle
You cannot delete components from the library. Be careful when choosing

Versioning and Releasing
Versioning classes is a lightweight operation. Within a week, for
example, a developer
might want to version a class more than once. One reason is obvious -- to
to return to that state of the class if you are about to try an
reason is to allow another developer to load the class -- developers
cannot load each
Releasing classes is less frequent. When you have tested the classes in
or app and want others to automatically get those versions when they load
you release the classes. Generally all classes are released when a trial
to be done for integration testing. At this point we suggest not
versioning the apps and subapps.
Versioning applications and subapplications is a heavyweight operation
not be done until the app has been tested. However, contrary to the normal
it is a good idea to immediately release to the parent app any new edition
of its subapp. A subapp does not need to be a version before it is
released to an app.
This is tricky for beginners in ENVY to remember.
Versioning a configuration is only possible when all of its
applications are versioned
and the configuration has successfully been loaded. One generally versions
after integration testing, for periodic development milestones. Another
typical configuration version is for builds done for special demos (such
as for OOPSLA '94!).
Methods are an exception to the versioning and releasing cycle. Method
automatically released to the class or class extension in which they are
The developer can always decide to load a different edition of a method,
"releasing" that method edition to its class or class extension
