What version of the extension should be used for an analysis and what is the latest version of an extension?
The version of an extension that will be used for the analysis, should be decided in regards to the functional needs and the extension release date. In that regard the latest service pack of a functional release may contain bug fixes, that have not yet been ported in the service pack of a higher functional release.
Take the following example from JEE extension:
- https://extend.castsoftware.com/V2/packages/com.castsoftware.jee/1.0.18 with release date 2019-05-28
- https://extend.castsoftware.com/V2/packages/com.castsoftware.jee/1.2.1-funcrel with release 2019-04-05
The former may contain bug fixes that have not yet been included in the latter since they have a difference in release date of 7 weeks. If the functional capabilities of 1.2 that are documented in
https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/TECHNOS/JEE+Analyzer+-+1.2+-+Release+Notes and in https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/TECHNOS/JEE+Analyzer+-+1.2#JEEAnalyzer-1.2-technologyTechnologysupport are not needed in
the context of your analysis, it is safer to use 1.0.18 since you reduce the risk of potential bugs.
Conclusion:always use the latest chronological version taking into account your functional needs
