Hi Skyler,

Thank you for asking here.

Let me highlight our development life-circle once again.
I believe it will clarify a lot here.

Sipwise provides LTS releases for the productions which are looking for
stability with long term support (3 years): 2.8 , mr3.8, mr4.5 (planned)

In the same time we release new releases mostly every 2 month to
deliver to the market new features customers request for.

Every non-LTS release have 2 builds in release life-circle.
Sample release mr4.3 had two builds: mr4.3.1 and mr4.3.2
The build mr4.3.1 brings new features of release mr4.3 and
the build mr4.3.2 brings more stability to release mr4.3 as
contains bugfixes only.

The users are free to decide about the upgrade flow:
mr4.3.1->mr4.3.2 (to stay on mr4.3 but be more stable) or
mr4.3.[1,2]->mr4.4.1 (to get new features of release mr4.4).

I hope it answers your questions.

Also, Sipwise operates with the following terms:
Release - pack of software which has new features and bugfixes: mrX.X
Build - pack of software which contains bugfixes only: mrX.X.X
Hotfix - some small changes to builds to fix something urgently without
waiting for the new build/release. It is a package update in publicly
available mrX.X.X
