I'm really disappointed with the release numbering that has been adopted by Smartermail...
Problem reported by Gabriele Maoret - SERSIS - 6/13/2024 at 5:26 PM
...I mean... there's no way that the stable version and the BETA version have the same version number...
this is FAR beyond anything I've ever seen in my life (and believe me, I've seen a lot... I even contributed to the Linux kernel, but I'd never thought about it before...) ....

This is just a rant about the numbering management which is simply stupid...

I'm not complaining about the product itself (wonderful, I think...) but only about the way the numbering is managed.

I'm a bit in the same boat for this.

I am waiting for a fix/addition to SmarterMail that would resolve an issue we have with retrieving informations from the server through the API.

It has been added to beta build 8909:
  • A new API call to retrieve domain aliases.
Logically I thought it would also be available when stable 8909 build is out, but it wasn't.
So now I'm a bit lost as on which stable build it will be available as the changelog for stable/beta for a same build number differs.

Now, it's really cool that there are two branches stable and beta. Here in the community we were asking for this for a long time :) But yes, the version numbering between beta and stable is a bit confusing.
