software update counting system [answered]

I'm getting mixed up with these numbers, but maybe someone has more on this: How are the system updates counted? No matter how I tried, I couldn't reach 17 for SFOS2 (to be released as next after 1.1.7.x). But according to the latest post on Jolla Blog:

"Sailfish OS 2.0 will be the 17th Sailfish OS software update from Jolla."

I started counting from the first update and reached 14 for SFOS2. There are three hotfixes released, and some updates mentioned as not released (merged), and some missing alphabet as the first letter in the update name. The best answer for this question would be a simple list of updates that are counted, showing Sailfish OS 2.0 as the 17th.

I'd imagine its an internal build number - so will only have a relationship with real world numbers in that they get incremented after every build. Not every build will be released.

The 1.1.7 update was Update 16, so they're counting unreleased updates too (which is understandable, IMHO). You can check that by looking at the changelog for store-client (the Jolla Store app, that also handles OS updates):

rpm -q --changelog store-client | more

But still, the next update should be "Update 18" as 1.1.8 has been skipped (at least from the information available in public), so I guess the Jolla Blog post is a bit off, too.

Fun fact: you can see the codenames for the unreleased updates by looking at the changelog of the sailfish-version package:

rpm -q --changelog sailfish-version | more

1.1.5 was Österviken, 1.1.3 was Åkantträsket and 1.0.6 was Raatejärvi.

There's the logic, thanks! And nice to see all the skipped names as well. So after the initial release, Sailfish OS Kaajanlampi, all the updates in order are:

  1. Laadunjärvi
  2. Maadajavri
  3. Naamankajärvi
  4. Ohijärvi
  5. Paarlampi
  6. 1.0.6.x Raatejärvi (not released)
  7. Saapunki (+optional hotfix
  8. Tahkalampi (+security hotfix
  9. Uitukka (+optional hotfix
  10. Vaarainjärvi
  11. Yliaavanlampi
  12. 1.1.3.x Åkantträsket (not released)
  13. Äijänpäivänjärvi
  14. 1.1.5.x Österviken (not released)
  15. Aaslakkajärvi
  16. 1.1.7.x Björnträsket
  17. Sailfish OS 2.0

2 upgrades have been merged, while one was opt-in only and there will be another upgrade before 2.0 iirc from the mail. So they count all upgrades that got prepared for release, even though they did not get released but rather merged into the next.
