Managing development of libraries
This is a very nice overview of how to start a project.
However, I just wonder how people usually manage the development of their own libraries. Specifically, when you need a "stable" version and a "development" version. For example, I have right now three personal libraries where I need to keep them "frozen" so that I can keep running some experiments for a project I am working on. But at the same time, I need to change/improve some of the code in these libraries for future projects.
Is is just a case of using the vcs (e.g., git), or having different system names (e.g., lib1-stable and lib1-dev), a combination of several things, or something else?
