Version 14 (modified by Antoine Martin, 7 years ago) (diff)



Current Status

There are 3 versions currently supported:

  • v0.14.x - the current LTS (long term support) release. This version will be supported until the next LTS release comes out.
  • v0.15.x - the latest release for older distributions (ie: Ubuntu Trusty, Debian Wheezy)
  • v0.16.x - the current release, will be supported until 0.17 comes out.
  • trunk - the current development version (will become 0.17).

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, v0.16.x NEWS, trunk NEWS.


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 will be compatible with 0.14.x onwards only


You can find binaries for tagged versions here:

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