#14739 closed defect (duplicate)

RecommendedTBBVersions does not advertise alpha versions anymore

As per Tor blog, TBB 4.5a3 is currently considered alpha, while TBB 4.0.3 is considered stable.

RecommendedTBBVersions currently reads.


This breaks updaters such as torbrowser-launcher (bug report).


  • Are the -alpha, -beta, -rc suffixed gone forever?
  • Or is 4.5a3 considered stable enough?
  • Or is the new RecommendedTBBVersions version format: "stable version at top, alpha on bottom"?

The format is not formally specified and finalized yet, see your #14383. That said "a" indicates that this is an alpha version. Oh, and see our blog post which makes an obvious connection between the "a" and the alpha version. Marking this as duplicate of #14383.
