Current Status

There are 2 versions currently supported and one in development:

  • v0.14.x - the old LTS (long term support) release. This legacy version will be discontinued in 2017.
  • v1.0.x - the current LTS stable release, will be supported for a minimum of 2 years
  • trunk - the current development version (will become 2.0)
  • 3.0 the next development version

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, v1.0.x NEWS, trunk NEWS.

Unsupported Versions


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
  • v0.16.x is compatible with 0.14.x onwards (it may or may not be compatible with earlier versions)
  • v0.17.x is compatible with 0.14.x onwards only
  • v1.0.x is compatible with 0.14.x onwards only


You can find binaries for tagged versions on the supported platforms here:

You may find beta builds of any branch or trunk here:

Release Schedule

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

The target is a 3 months release cycle - but this target has been missed every time for the last 3 releases..

Release Process

  • development phase: roughly 2 months
    • ticket review and planning: updating the new milestone page
    • code refactoring and cleanups early
    • beta builds
    • run automated tests
  • stabilisation phase: roughly 1 month - much more for LTS releases, including:
    • updating the OSX and win32 builds to the latest versions supported (ie: ffmpeg, pillow, etc..)
    • update patches with new offsets
    • check profiling results for regressions (see #797)
    • add new tests (see #847, #177, #660)
    • run with "-d all" and look for exceptions, look for idle events with out any clients connected
    • test against the oldest client and server versions supported
    • whitespace / tabspace cleanup
    • tagging the version in the repository
  • release:
    • add to wiki/News page
