I've just installed and configured my first OpenWRT router and have a question....I am currently running OpenWrt 19.07.3 r11063-85e04e9f46 on my BT Homehub 5a.
How do I know what release version is available from the download page? It just says 'openwrt-19.07.3-lantiq-xrx200-bt_homehub-v5a-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin', so a basic version number but not release number.
This is a code/release revision.
This is not a code branch, but a tag.
Git tag is a specific point in the repository history that matches a single revision.
> git branch -a
remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master
> git tag
You'll have to excuse my lack of GitHub knowledge.....So if I download 'v19.7.03' for As long as it is available would it always be release 'r11063-85e04e9f46'?
I presumed that there would be smaller code releases until a larger 'v19.7.04' was released.
If there is, is there a way to tell from the Openwrt websites download, what release you are downloading?
Official OpenWrt releases use only Git tags, i.e. a single revision per tag.
The versioning scheme of unofficial releases and forks depends on their vendor.
Great, that explains it all thanks
