It’s an idea for a feature for download.blender.org/release:
There could be a “LTS” folder containing the lastest LTS release (or all the LTS ?). This way we could always get the latest up-to-date version automatically.
I’ll explain our use-case: We are using Blender to do renders of user’s scenes, running on a distant server running a pre-built image of an ubuntu system. When we build this image, we download Blender and install it (we don’t use Ubuntu’s Blender package as it is a little old). This is an automated process, but we have to tell the script what version we want. This mean each time there is a new version coming out, we have to update the script’s configuration.
Let me know what you think about it, maybe it’s not a good practice ?
