Version/Release question



  • Hi,

    When I enter the command os.uname() into the REPL this result comes back:

    (sysname='WiPy', nodename='WiPy', release='1.17.3.b1', version='v1.8.6-849-83e2f7f on 2018-03-19', machine='WiPy with ESP32')
    

    I'm confused about the release vs version. Can someone explain to me what the difference is?

    Also is my board up-to-date with the latest release?

    Thanks!

    release='1.17.3.b1'

    this is version of Pycom firmware

    version='v1.8.6-849-83e2f7f on 2018-03-19'

    this is version of micropython

    Also is my board up-to-date with the latest release?

    and it looks like recent firmware
