Open edX software versions


From the last meeting, we talked about getting the current version used by different software used to run Openedx. I setup a local installation and searched for the installed version of the databases and python/ruby/npm of the basic services. I still have to do the extraction for Juniper, so we can compare when we start creating the release.
After this exercise, I think creating a playbook that fetch the installed version and roles would be a lot faster to fetch and compare (Or just do it this way until we move to another deployment method).

If I’m missing any important services, I can restart the VM and look for it.

Best Regards,


This is all tremendously useful @felipe.espinoza.r, thanks a bunch!

I expect this is going to change a lot before Nov. 9, which is the date of the Koa feature freeze, so it would make sense to run this multiple times before then. Could you please publish your script, for instance as a Github gist?

Also, what is most interesting is actually the diff from Juniper. Could you also run your script on a native Juniper installation so that we can highlight the differences?

For comparison, here is the calendar/chart of the support windows for various versions:

I wrote a small script to extract all the versions here:

Extracted with $OPENEDX_RELEASE=open-release/juniper.3

Service Software Version
System mysql 5.6.32
System mongodb 3.6.17
System rabbitmq 3.6.9
System memcached 1.4.25
System elasticsearch 1.5.2
System node v12.19.0
System npm 6.14.8
System python 2.7.12
edx-platform python 3.5.2
edx-sandbox python 3.5.2
certs python 2.7.12
discovery python 3.5.2
ecommerce python 3.5.2
insight python 3.5.2
xqueue python 3.5.2
forum ruby 2.5.7p206
forum gem 2.7.8

Note: I don’t know if the node version difference was because I ran this in AWS instead of a local VM.


From now on please report your findings here:
