Version numbers

 [1/1] from: hallvard::ystad::gmail::com at: 11-Mar-2006 22:00

So, what's up with these version numbers? Quoting The format is: version . revision . release . system . variation For example: tells us that it's version 2, revision 5, release 4, for windows, running NT, 2000, XP, 98, 95. The system and variation numbers can be used by scripts to determine what OS and processor they are running on. Quoting ["" "OpenBSD" "iX86" Released core091.tar.gz] ["" "OpenBSD" "x86-elf" Released rebol-core-2602092.tar.gz] ["" "OpenBSD" "68K" Released core093.tar.gz] ["" "OpenBSD" "DEC Alpha" Pending core094.tar.gz] ["" "OpenBSD" "Sparc" Released core095.tar.gz] I suppose my OpenBSD3.8 machine running on an ordinary intel PIII (x86-elf) chip should be running rebol version x.x.x.9.2. But on, I find no mention of the different varants. It seems the difference is given in OpenBSD versions (3.4 - 3.6 get a x.x.x.9.2download link, the newest OpenBSD release, 3.8, get Going back to, I find both a for OpenBSD3.6 and a "core091" download for OpenBSD3.3 . All these rebols work on my machine (except the core091 download, where the rebol executable seems to be corrupted), but I suppose the very high crash frequence I have had lately could be due to the build being coined for an Alpha processor... What a mess! HY
