Use Version template on Qubes wiki page?

I saw your change:

Thanks for the quick update.

Long story for a relatively minor thing here…

Was wondering, you may or may not want to use:
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:VersionNew

It is supposed to always contain the latest stable version.

You can see how it can be used in an example:
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:DownloadTableNew

Or easier said, just use {{VersionNew}} and mediawiki will it replace it with the template.

[Why is it called “VersionNew” and not “Version”? There is/was a “Version” template in past. Before bigger changes between major releases or when changing the download table, it was simpler to have a second template to be able to experiment with the wiki markup.]

I make changes in maintenance releases (ex: 9.1, 9.2) as minimal as possible, so chances it breaks something unrelated are minimal.

You still might not want to use the {{VersionNew} template if you don’t want to have the version changed on the Qubes page before having tried that is actually still works or if you think a new stable version would require bigger changes on the Qubes page. I am neutral here. As the Qubes maintainer, you know best and you decide.

Yes, I was recently thinking of asking you if the wiki had this variable capability for current Whonix version numbers.

One thing I noticed upon today’s announcement was that 9.2 did not have a git tag in the stable production repo, just the personal nothing-to-see repo.

I was thinking that maybe it was still a work in progress today, so held off on updating the source code install guide to wait and see.

Wondering if the current stable version numbers will consistently match between binary downloads and stable repo git tags upon such version releases?

Forgot pushing it to that repo. Now done.

Yes, because file names are automatically generated using git tag versions.

Great. Implemented this. Thanks!

This is amazing! Needed this for build documentation.

<pre<noinclude></noinclude>>
git tag -v {{VersionNew}}
</pre>

Thought this is impossible. (Even asked in #mediawiki.)

Crafty indeed. :smiley:
