Description Samuel Padgett 2021-06-02 15:47:58 UTC
We're currently parsing the version this way:

  // Show only major and minor version.
  const version = (useOpenshiftVersion() || '')
    .slice(0, 2)


We have a semver library already for more robust version parsing. We should be using that instead of string split/join. See


for an example.

Comment 2 Yadan Pei 2021-06-09 02:35:37 UTC
Check the version number in several places:

1. Getting started tour guide on Developer Console +Add page, it shows `What's new in OpenShift 4.8` 
2. Getting started tour guide on Admin Console Home page, it shows `See what's new in OpenShift 4.8`

using semver.parse we are returning correct version
