    Hi George – I humbly suggest that Centminmod adopt simpler version numbers. The current system is long, inconsistent, and confusing.

    For example, I think the current release is V1.2.3-Eva2000.09.

    I'm not sure what Eva refers to, and 2000 makes me think of the year 2000, which obviously can't be right. I'm not sure if 09 is a month (September), but if it is, then that's confusing because it would imply that 2000 is the year, which it can't be.

    On the Change Log page, you also call it "Aka 123.09beta01 Github Branch" – a completely different version number, which just adds confusion.

    You also call it "Centmin Mod .09 beta", which will add more confusion.

    I suggest having one and only one version number for any release, and that it be shorter and not include the string 2000. If you want to keep the core 1.2.3 part, then maybe you could add one or two digits to that. For example, the current release could be called 1.2.3_09. Since the Eva2000 string is included in all Centminmod versions, it's not really doing anything useful, probably causes confusion, and can be removed.

    yeah the numbers are changing to 123.08stable and 123.09beta01 these days - and change log reflects this somewhat Change Log - CentminMod.com LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS

    after 123.09beta01 goes stable 123.09stable, there will be a further simplification of version numbers for subsequent releases

    yeah eva200 part was back in 2011 to differentiate it from origin centmin lemp stack

    well haven't decided on final version numbers yet but 123.09stable will be the final version to use that version format for sure

    subsequent releases most likely will be
    • 130.01, 130.02 etc for stable and no more betas but instead have a Dev/master branch

    Sorry, because I am still learning all that sys admin stuff (install, clone, recompile...), but is that means that upgrades will stay same (same way to upgrade centmin)?

    Yeah upgrades via centmin.sh menu option 23 are the same, just you'll be using submenu option 3 more than 2 i.e. 130.01 to 130.02 etc. Should allow for quicker minor releases. Though probably if you're choose to install the Dev/master (equivalent to current betas), you would just use submenu option 2 everytime Dev/master gets updated.

    So it will be same process (23 - 2) to update.
    I am on beta last 6-7 month I think, and so many good and better stuff is there what stable version don't have

    same if you switch to the then new Dev/master after 123.09stable is released. Then continue centmin.sh menu option 23 subemenu option 2.

    Note current dev/master is set to 123.08stable code, that will change after 123.09stable is released.
