Version numbers in the Client

Last updated:

The Monitoring Client supports a both a version and build number.

Details of new releases will be listed on our Release Notes page and to our Community Forum.

Finding the version and build numbers (Mac)

The Mac agent follows traditional Semantic Versioning, with Major features incrementing the first and second digits. Minor improvments or important bug fixes will trigger a dot-release. Minor bug fixes and changes to a given company's Custom Branding will trigger changes to the build number alone.

The PreferencePane displays the version number in the lower-right hand corner:

Version and Build Number (Linux)

Linux agents follow Semantic Versioning, as the Mac, however more focus is given to the build number, saving point relases for new additions.

To view the linux agent's version and build number use:

 cat /etc/monitoringclient/client_settings.conf

Sample output (trimmed):

{ "WatchmanID": "20160305-4XFE-TTGE8C", 
  "Build_Number": "216", 
  "Client_Version": "3.0", 
  "ClientGroup": "Staging",
  ...
}

Windows Version Number

Our Windows agent follows Assembly Versioning, which consisists of a four digit pattern. The Windows RC series started with 1.0.0.0. Minor updates will have point increments such as 1.0.0.5.

 

Older beta agents followed a series of numbers from .25b to .63b. As of 2017, any agent which has not auto-updated will likely require a manual update or re-installation.
