Title: Release 01.08.06 - 2 versions?
Post by: dpaul on 2018 December 22 18:28:38
Last week I downloaded the new 01.08.06 version of Pixinsight (01.08.06.1447). Now I saw a new notification saying version 01.08.06.1448 telling me I need to repeat the whole process again.
I can't see any reference on the form regarding two versions of 01.08.06?


Is this a fix to some problems with the 1447 version?

Hi David,

I suppose that this is one of the major advantages of PixInsight. First a new release is developed and tested as much as is practical, then it gets released into the wild. Of course, now there is several orders of magnitude more 'testers' who will start using it.

Not all of these 'new testers' will see, or do, things the way that the design team has expected. And so 'bugs' may arise. Fortunately for us, the PI team can respond very quickly to these 'bugs' and sub-releases will appear very soon after the main version upgrade.

The best that you can do is to keep abreast with these developments here on the PI Forum, read the comments, and choose the upgrades that you want.

Hi Niall
No problems, I quickly did the upgrade again.
