Hi , I'm sorry if this is a stupid question - but I did not see a explanation anywhere obvious.

I've been "absent" from elasticsearch/kibana for a while , while working on some other projects.
I've been waiting for the 5.0 release before porting my application from ES1.7 & Kibana 4.1

But today when I checked in - I see Kibana 6.0 alpha ?
What happened to the 5.0 release ?
The version compatibility chart is As confusing. Kibana 6.1.2, Elastic 6..x , 7.x ?

What year is this - have I been asleep ?

Where is this compatibility chart you are looking at?

On git ( ... have I stumbled into the twilight zone ?

The master branch version has been bumped to 6.0 very recently. If you want the source of the 5.0 which is the next stable version, it is here:

The numbers in that graph are for demonstration purposes only. The next major version is 5.0.

Hi Pieter, I'm trying to figure out how to make this chart less confusing. You're not the first to be confused by it!

Please take a look at the attached image and let me know if this makes things clearer.

Hi - Thanx all for clearing things up.

CJ, I perfectly understand meaning of the compatibility chart - I think it does a good job in that regard. I was just confused by the actual version numbers used in it.
Would it not make sense to dynamically construct the table , base on the current version (of the branch ) ?
At least the kibana version. I do understand the need for fictional ES versions to illustrate certain scenarios.

I think most of all I was just confused that there is already a "6.0.0 alpha1" when 5.0 is not even out of alpha yet.

Ah I see. Yeah it is kinda weird to be working on 6 already, at the same time as 5. :slight_smile:

Thanks for your suggestion about dynamically constructing the table. I like that idea, though that might take a little work to implement!
