Never mind, it was a simple memory issue that was causing npm install to die.
Fixed with these instructions:
I get this message but v1.x.x is v1.4.6
You are running NodeBB v1.4.6.
A new version (v1.5.0) has been released. Consider upgrading your NodeBB.
I guess we have some issues with 1.5.0 until its ready for v1.x.x
v1.5.0 is also part of of v1.x.x branch and it's the latest stable release.
Strange, I updated now and no 1.5.0 from v1.x.x
The 1.x.x branch isnt updated to have 1.5.0 yet. It needs updating.
Yes, I noticed I am updating to 1.4.6 at the moment
The v1.x.x branch does not contain v1.5.0 because we have decided that breaking changes should result in separate release branches. Therefore, v1.5.0 is available from the v1.5.x branch.
There was a slight issue with our release that resulted in v1.5.0 being on the v1.x.x branch but that was quickly fixed. The only way that v1.x.x will contain v1.5.0 is for you to have pulled those branches in the short time between when the issue happened and when we fixed it.
They switched to using the minor version in Git I believe, so going forward it will not be 1.x.x, it will be 1.5.x, 1.6.x, etc
Ok, so 1.5.x branch is stable to use. Is 1.x.x maintained for bugfixes only or just for history sake?
