Versions


Current Status

There are 3 versions currently supported:

  • v0.14.x - the current LTS (long term support) release. This version will be supported until mid 2016 when the next LTS release is due.
  • v0.15.x - the current release, will be supported until 0.16 comes out.
  • trunk - the current development version (will become 0.16).

Fixes are almost always committed to trunk before landing in other branches, you can find a list of the currently pending fixes here.

Here is the latest release notes (the version shown may not have been released yet): v0.14.x NEWS, v0.15.x NEWS, trunk NEWS.

Compatibility

Versions older than 0.14 are not supported. Please complain to your distributor for not updating a package with known bugs and vulnerabilities (more info here: wiki/Packaging).

You can mix versions between the clients and servers, as long as they are reasonably up to date:

  • v0.14.x is compatible with versions 0.7.8 onwards. (it may or may not work with earlier versions)
  • v0.15.x is compatible with versions 0.12.6 onwards.
  • trunk will be compatible with 0.14.x onwards (it may or may not be compatible with earlier versions)

Binaries

You can find binaries for tagged versions (currently 0.14 and 0.15) here:
http://xpra.org/dists/

You may find beta builds of any branch or trunk here:
http://xpra.org/beta/

Release Schedule

The release schedule varies, versions are shipped when they are ready...

That said, the delay between 0.14 and 0.15 was far too long, we are trying to target a 3 months release cycle.
