How to determine latest build number
Will the next update to 2.0.0 increment the version number (e.g. to 2.0.1) or just the build number (currently 1976)?
For a while I was inadvertently running two different builds of 2.0.0 in my cluster, and having no end of random crashes. Having rebuilt my cluster with 2.0.0-1976 it seems more stable than before (although I did just observe a random crash of a node) but I want to make sure I keep updated to the latest version from now on.
My point is that from the download page http://www.couchbase.com/download there is no way to determine the build number 1976 of the latest version 2.0.0.
If you are talking about the download page of Couchbase Web site, this page contains by default the latest stable release.
So today it is the Couchbase Server 2.0.0 (the official GA) that is build 1976.
When Couchbase 2.0.1 will be available it will be the default one.
if you want to know in which version your server is running you can use the REST API:
shell> curl -u Administrator:password 127.0.0.1:8091/pools/nodes
This will return the list of nodes as JSON document and you can search for the "version" attribute:
"version": "2.0.0-1976-rel-community", "os": "i386-apple-darwin11.4.0",
