Hi,

Well, i will try to explain briefly. Since the early realese I started installing GNS3 on linuxmint following a tutorial from this forum (topic9106.html) . Everything worked fine. After like 2 months without using it (all my time used at my job u_U) I decided today to update it using the same procedure.(which are the last 2 step of the tutorial) to practice with junos.

It seems updated worked as now i have a working gns3 but I realized that on the information console says. :

"GNS3 management console. Running GNS3 Early Release (ER) version 1.0b1.dev1 on linux"

And i guess it should say something like alpha version 1.0a8. X__X

So if anyone can tell me what is going on .. if this is right or wrong or i dont know...

pd: I checked the new Features said to be on alpha8 like inserting an image and change symbols and it works... so .. i dont understand x_x

thanks for your help :D

The a stand for alpha. a8 is alpha 8 and b stand for beta. Thus, the 1.0b1.dev1 can be read as version 1.0 beta 1 development version 1. This means the next release will be the our first beta!

Hope this makes sense.

Cheers,

Dear grossmj,

I understand your explanation.

But, :) this means that the beta version is better than the alpha, in other words, to get the lastest features do i stick with the alpha or with the beta version, or is it the same?

Thanks,

Just more stable when released (now it is just a development version, so we are working on it). In other words, stick with the alpha for now and switch to the beta when we release the first beta (1.0b1).

Cheers,

Just to followup on Jeremy's post... instead of wget'ing the master branch, you can download the release tarballs

GNS3 GUI - https://github.com/GNS3/gns3-gui/releases

These two pages list the releases as they are tagged in the GitHub Repository
