Category: InterWorx Software Channels
InterWorx provides updates through four yum repositories. All four are supported (with a current license). InterWorx refers to these as Software Channels, and they may be changed at any time by going to NodeWorx -> Server -> Software Updates.
The Release Channel is the default. Packages in the Release Channel have been through the Beta Channel and Release Candidate Channel for significant features. Security releases and other hotfixes may be released into this channel without prior inclusion in a Beta or Release Candidate if necessary.
The Beta Channel is where new InterWorx software will first arrive. While the software is supported by InterWorx, this will be new features that may be subject to change before final release.
The Release Candidate Channel is for InterWorx software that has been through at least one Beta release without significant issues.
The Stable Channel is the final option. Software in the Stable Channel has been through the Beta -> Release Candidate -> Release cycle, and is further delayed to ensure that the Release rollout did not discover any further problems. Software will be available in the Stable Channel when stable – it’s possible that a Release Channel release may be skipped, and the next release would find itself in Stable.
