Nightly Development Version.

#1 Post by RonaldF » 2019-10-04 16:04

I just downloaded and installed a fresh FileZilla Client from the page shown below, and it says I have downloaded the Nightly Development Version.
https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client

I am using Windows 10 64 bit. Not sure why it is saying this "You are using a nightly development version of FileZilla 3, do not expect anything to work. Please use the official releases instead."

Unless you downloaded from the Nightly page (https://filezilla-project.org/nightly.php), there's no way you could downloaded a nightly build.

Please check your FileZilla settings, under Updates, the "When checking for updates, check for:" option should be set to "Stable versions only". It might be currently set to receive Nightly builds.

Ok so maybe the notification is just being triggered for no reason, I went into update settings and it is showing that it is only looking for stable versions. I am not sure why the warning is happening, but at least it seems I do have the stable version installed and working.

If you open Help - About, does your information look like mine? (minus the OS details and path, of course)

It's actually strange... One could be a fluke, but now we have already two cases.

Does the package downloaded from https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?show_all=1 exhibit the same behavior?



@botg: Mind fixing the year string in that window, even though we have October already?

Looks like the sponsored package contains a Nightly version, by accident. Need to wait for the dev.

The non-bundled packages seem to be correct.

I'm confused. How is this happening?

Time to debug the build system. My first guess: Something involving stuck tasks and cleanup/sync scripts running out-of-order.
