The attribute defined by this class attaches additional version information to an assembly for documentation purposes only. This data is never used at runtime.

Although you can specify any text, a warning message appears on compilation if the string is not in the format used by the assembly version number, or if it is in that format but contains wildcard characters. This warning is harmless.

For more information, see Assembly Versioning and Setting Assembly Attributes in the full .NET Framework documentation.
