How often are eBay categories updated?

Is there a regular schedule for ebay category updates? It seems like it happens once in the fall, and once in spring, but I'm not sure exactly. Does anyone know?

Sellers are informed of future category changes during the Seller Releases that typical happen in the Spring and Autumn. Be aware that not every Seller Release will include changes to the categories. If you are looking for a programmatic way of determining if the category structure has changed for a site you can check the category version that is returned in [GetCategories]( http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/XML/docs/Reference/eBay/GetCategories.html). There is more [information in the docs]( http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/guides/ebayfeatures/Development/Categories-DataMaintenance.html#CheckingtheCategoryHierarchyVersion).
