    Pcp Update to LMS 8.1.2

    I am confused about how LMS updates happen with pcp. I am on pcp 6.1 (I will be updating to 7.0) and I have previously used the lms-update script to select the stable branch of LMS with nightly updates:

    Code:
     sudo ./lms-update.sh --release stable -s -r -u
    I have been receiving notifications that updates are available and using the "Nightly Update" button to apply the updates. Now that 8.1.1 has been released, I expected the "Nightly Update" button to update me to 8.1.2 but I get "no updates available", I also get no update notifications. My LMS version is:

    Code:
    8.1.1 - 1610364019 @ Mon Jan 11 12:46:07 CET 2021
    I had thought setting the release branch to "stable" should have moved me to the 8.1.2 release. Am I missing something?

    I am not sure how this answers my question. I chose the stable release but am still on 8.1.1, not 8.1.2.

    8.1.1 is stable. On my Pi which is Raspbian I needed to install 8.1.2 manually and from then on I get updates.

    Ah, sorry, on the LMS page click the "Update LMS" button, then on the next page click the "Manual Update" button.

    As I understand it, 8.1.1 is now classified as the release version and 8.1.2 as the stable version.

    OK, I'm still on 6.1.0 and I don't get that option. I guess I will need to run the lms-update.sh command manually again to get to 8.1.2.

    I would have thought release and stable are equivalent.

    Release is a released version. It will not receive any updates.

    Stable and Development are work in process branches that get updates.

    When a new release is made, the other branches may not exist yet. Whatever the xml returns is what you get.

    Code:
    release) "http://downloads.slimdevices.com/releases/latest.xml"
    stable) "http://downloads.slimdevices.com/releases/nightly/stable.xml"
    devel) "http://downloads.slimdevices.com/releases/nightly/dev.xml"
