Frequently Asked Questions v2


There are two branches, currently (9 Jan 2001) these numbers are

(main) developer 2.1.0
stable 2.0.1

Production systems will probably want to work with 2.0.1, although 2.1.0 is fairly stable.

In theory, to discover which version you are using, look in "CHANGES", for example apc-aa.sourceforge.net/aa/CHANGES shows that Sourceforge is still running the stable branch, but note that CHANGES is frequently NOT updated to show the version number of the developer version, and the current developer version shows the same version 2.0.1 with just a few more dated changes.

If you check out the default method:

cvs -z3 -d:ext:yourusername@cvs.apc-aa.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/apc-aa -r2_0_1 co apc-aa
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.apc-aa.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/apc-aa co -rv2_0_1 apc-aa

you will get the developer branch, but

cvs -z3 -d:ext:yourusername@cvs.apc-aa.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/apc-aa co apc-aa
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.apc-aa.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/apc-aa co apc-aa

Note that you cannot assume that different branches will run with the same Database.

In particular to upgrade from 2.0.1 to 2.1.0 you need to run sql_update.php3 to upgrade the database fields.
