Weekly test builds: These are the regular test builds we provide between releases. Currently made every Tuesday (unless my RL schedule interferes, which happens now and then). Based on the master branch, and usually suspended when we produce release candidates for a new release. Resumed after a new stable release is out.EricF wrote:As someone who always tries to play the latest version I hope you can understand my confusion.
Pre-release test builds: More or less the same as the weekly test builds, but based on the release branch (instead of master) once one has been created because we want to make a new release. Pre-release test builds are provided if we can't make a release candidate yet because there are still open issues/bugs that need to be addressed.
Release Candidates: As the name suggets, these are builds which are considered "candidates" for a stable release. When we want to make a new stable release, these are produced and should be tested for a while. If no serious issue turns up, a release candidate is declared to be the new stable release (which means a stable release build is the exact same one as the last release candidate build). We are currently in that phase, today I will produce Release Candidate 2 (short RC2) for the 0.4.6 release. Based on the release branch of course.
Stable Release: Well, that one should be self-explaining. The latest stable release. Currently still 0.4.5, but hopefully (by Thursday next week), 0.4.6.
Confusion cleared up?
