Cura Steam Engine Version Numbers


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Steam Engine Version Numbers

I have a third party printer (R3D Mini) that comes with a customized version of Cura for Windows. The version number listed in the gcode file is:

“Cura Steam Engine version 15.02.1, Copyright (C) 2014 David Braam”

Near as I can determine this is about 5 to 6 years old. 


On my Linux machine (I do not really use Windows for anything) with the current version of Cura installed the version number listed in the gcode file is:

"Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 4.10.0"


Now it has been a while since I a took a course in math .... but it appears that the version numbering was changed at some point (circa 2014?).


Can anyone shed some some light on the Cura version numbering system?

    So we used to use year.month.patch. At some point we switched over to semver; Major.minor.patch.

    So the last version of Legacy Cura (which the version that you have is based on) is 15.04.6. So we released that in 2015.

    We now release a new version every 2 months. We update the major version number if we have major changes (usually API breaking or other really large changes)
