This is why Ian is using a version control system. As long as there
are labels attached to each version, you can always go back and
forward between versions without having to resort to different file
names or different folders. As Ian explained, using different
filenames actually breaks this mechanism. You may want to look into a
Git tutorial to see how easy it is to - with just three or four
commands you can do all that. All you need is to have Git installed
on your system.

To create a copy of the repository, you use this command (this
assumes a Linux or other Unix type system - I don't know what the
corresponding commands would be for Windows):

git clone

You then go into the ubitx folder:

cd ubitx

From within this folder, you can list the tags that are available:

git tags

If you want to use the latest version, you are usually already all
set, to go back to a previous version, you would use the checkout

git checkout v1.06

The argument you use (in this case "v1.06" is one of the tags that
were listed with the "tags" command above).

You can always find out what's going on by using the "status" command:

git status

Especially if you want to make your own changes, Git is a great
system, because you will always know what you've changed and you can
keep track of your changes by creating your own branches and tags.

This is how professional software development is done.
