Just ran sfdx and was prompted:
sfdx-cli: update available from 6.24.0-9405104f19 to 6.25.0-085abe54b0
Great! let me just see what's changed. A quick search for "sfdx-cli release notes" netted me a page full of release notes but the version numbers don't bear any resemblance to the message above; the latest release in the notes is "43.8.0 (July 19, 2018)". Next I searched "sfdx-cli 6.25.0" (from the "update available" message) and found the npm package page for sfdx-cli, which is currently at 6.25.0, and was published a day ago... which clearly jives with the release date for 43.8.0 on the release notes page. Unfortunately, the npm page doesn't include any release notes and doesn't mention any 43.xx version number.
Thinking that perhaps 6.25.0 is just an npm version number, I checked with the tool itsself:
> $ sfdx version ▸ sfdx-cli: update available from 6.24.0-9405104f19 to 6.25.0-085abe54b0
So, is there a way to convert 6.xx version numbers to 43.xx version numbers? Do I have the wrong version of
sfdx installed? Or is there a set of release notes available for the 6.xx version? I can intuit which is which based on release dates, but I'd prefer to have a definitive set of release notes based on a matching version number.
