What is my asterisk version?

probably a dump question :blush:
i have downloaded and installed asterisk from svn… using:

svn checkout svn.asterisk.org/svn/asterisk/trunk asterisk

svn checkout svn.asterisk.org/svn/dahdi/linux/trunk dahdi-linux

svn checkout svn.asterisk.org/svn/dahdi/tools/trunk dahdi-tools

what base version is that? 1.4 1.6.0 1.6.2 1.8

lanCLI> core show version

Howdy,

If you’re pulling from trunk, then you’re pulling from something that doesn’t have a base version.

1.4, 1.6.x, and 1.8 are all branches from trunk that occurred at one point in time. 1.8 has already been branched and is set to become the next major release. After that occurs, we will continue development inside of trunk, and then one day branch off of trunk in preparation for the next major release.

Cheers
