Versioning of Whonix Qubes

Being consciously aware of the versioning between different releases of Whonix Qubes is important for helping us test, support, and develop the system.

Since the new Whonix Qubes has been incorporated into the Qubes repos, the releases published by the Qubes team are likely to be the default releases that we support.


Whonix Qubes Binary Release Versioning

So far, as of this posting, there has only been one Whonix binary release by the Qubes team, which includes two VM templates (Whonix-Gateway and Whonix-Workstation).

These initial current template version numbers are:

  • Whonix-Gateway: 2.1.7-201412012134

  • Whonix-Workstation: 2.1.7-201412012203

They also come with corresponding SHA256 hash checksums:

  • Whonix-Gateway: ad73c465b86dea8b9a90c733585d36b4ed9c1c5dce2b7997f29bd9782921bea6

  • Whonix-Workstation: 3737e071d8a8085c47bae35d85d9289a77dadcac83de5866a7a5d016060964ba

The binary RPM package filenames are:

Whonix Qubes Source Release Versioning

To be determined.

Information on how Qubes team source code can be reliably associated or versioned with specific Whonix releases by the Qubes team would be helpful.

Here is where the Qubes source code repos are kept:

Whonix Qubes source builds are initiated with the “qubes-builder.git” repo(s).


In the future, I will plan to maintain versioning information on the Whonix Qubes Wiki.
