(SharePoint Add-in Manifest)

Applies to: SharePoint Add-ins | SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Server 2013

Identifies a version for a feature, capability, add-in, product, or other software component.


The string app appears as part of or all of some element, attribute, and file names because SharePoint Add-ins were originally called "apps for SharePoint." To ensure backward compatibility, the schemas have not been changed.
