Continuous deployment is the process of checking into master, running all the tests and if everything goes green it is automatically pushed to production.
By default GitVersion is not setup to do this. The good news is in v3 of GitVersion this behavior is configurable!
The default behavior for v3 and how v1 & 2 worked was that the version only incremented after a tag, which signified a release. In v3 you can simply switch the default mode in the configuration from
continuous-deployment and the version will then increment each commit, giving you the features of GitVersion with continuous deployment.
