I try to find the corresponding git commit of the last downloadable release (here), with no success.

I thought it was the corresponding tag but when I diff the source directory I can see differences..

At least, it's the case for the 2.4.8 version.

So, my question: How to know which branch/tag corresponds to a specific download release on the website?


edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


Afaik this is the way to go

  • clone the repository
  • git checkout 2.4.9 gives you the stable release that was offered as download except a slight change if there were critical errors. Keep in mind that 2.4.8 had a critical revision.
  • git checkout 2.4 is the best way to go, it contains all stable fixes after the last package
  • git checkout master gives you the master branch with all new developed functionality but does not guarantee a stable built.

Does that help?
