name

The marketing name for the particular Windows release. If not provided, it gets automatically filled in according to family and version values, therefore name should be omitted for pre-1995 Windows versions.

family

This describes the product line the particular Windows release belongs to. This parameter has the following legal values, which expand to the respective descriptions:

version

This is the version number of the particular Windows release. For families 16, 9x, nt this should be a rational number with up to two decimal points. Don't prefix the version number with anything.

Since Windows 10 November Update (family 10) this is a four-digit number that happens to be a date in the format YYMM. Please note that the marketing name might not always reflect the version number, e.g. Windows 10 April 2018 Update is actually version 1803 and not 1804 as one would expect!

codename, preliminary

Codenames and preliminary names for the particular Windows release, if any. Please distinguish between a codename, which is only an internal term used to refer to the product (i.e. Whistler Server) and a preliminary name, which is an official name that has been abandoned before the final release (i.e. Windows .NET Server 2003).

arch

A listing of architectures supported by the particular Windows release. Tends to be one or more of the following:

  • x86
  • x64
  • AXP
  • PPC
  • IA64
  • ARM
  • ARM64

latestbuild

Link to the latest build of the particular Windows release.

releasedate

The original release date of the particular Windows release, e.g. 1985-11-20 for Windows 1.0.

support

The end of support date for the particular Windows release.

sku

List of the SKUs/editions that the particular Windows release was officially available in, separated by <br> tags.

based-on, replaces, replaced-by

Use this to link to the versions of Windows that the particular release is based on, replaces or is replaced by. If this applies only to a specific SKU of that version, the link should mention the SKU in question, e.g. Windows 2000 Professional.

based-on should be used in cases the particular Windows release builds upon another version to provide some specific functionality, e.g. Windows Home Server is based on Windows Small Business Server 2003, which in turn is based on Windows Server 2003.
