Vanilla Versions : where can I find them?*

Hi There,

I love the Vanilla Forum system and really appreciate the work that has gone into it.

However I'm concerned over version control as there are addons which don't work with the version I'm using. The version I'm using is the latest version available via the download link at the top of this page. This version ( is NOT the latest release version and there appears to be no way to download the latest version from this site. I know it is available via the git repositories but that's not clear until you've done a lot of looking through the forums.

It might be better if either the latest stable version were made available on this page. Alternatively a clear note as to which version IS the latest stable release and where to get it.

Thanks to all who are providing this and working to improve it. I really appreciate it.

    The latest stable version is always the version available (currently from here, afaIk.

    If you have you do have the latest stable version.

    The 2.1 + versions available on GitHub are all beta versions.

    Although the beta is not released for production, lots of people are using it, and some people have created plugins that only work with 2.1+

    This announced thread: http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/24845/vanilla-2-1b2-released#latest makes it clear that Vanilla do not want people using 2.1 + unless they are prepared to be part of the Beta testing:

    This beta release is here so that the community can help us get Vanilla ready to release 2.1. Please keep this in mind when downloading it. Please do not download this release if you do not have some experience using Vanilla. You may have the best intentions, but you will be hindering, not helping the testing process.

    Thanks for clarifying this.

    Perfect ... when an addon is not working with and it does not specifically state that you need 2.1b2 or better, please create a topic on that plugin's page so the author and community can take a look at it...
