Summary0005577: TurboTax software keeping name, but changing major version number every year
DescriptionCertain kinds of software, most notably tax software release a new product every year, however they don't change the name, but only the main version number (see image upload for Turbo Tax).

For those kinds of software, SUMo should ideally use the main version number to differentiate different products and only the minor version numbers to check for the latest version. E.g. in the Turbo Tax example in the uploaded image, for Turbo Tax 2017 any version 2018.x.y.z should be irrelevant, it should only be checked against version 2017.x.y.z.
Additional InformationI understand that this would be hard to impossible to detect automatically, so perhaps this "behavior" is something that users could flag for specific programs and then could be stored in the main database.
TagsNo tags attached.

This issue seems related to issue . Kyle, please add the relation as neither tangofan nor I have the appropriate permissions (after issue creation).

As seen there and its related other issues, this symptom is not limited to tax software but happens to release policies of different products, product categories and software publishers.

Not linked to 0001783 as this one is explicitely to be considered as a separate product.
