Using semantic versioning to specify update types your package can accept

You can specify which update types your package can accept from dependencies in your package’s boss.json file.

For example, to specify acceptable version ranges up to 1.0.4, use the following syntax:

  • Patch releases: 1.0 or 1.0.x or ~1.0.4
  • Minor releases: 1 or 1.x or ^1.0.4
  • Major releases: * or x
