All linux builds are considered beta. The Beta channel is on version 4.35.126 across all desktop platforms, and that is correctly reflected on the snapcraft repo’s beta channel. This is not an issue and not what I am talking about.
Let me try to reiterate one more time –
Slack released version 4.34.121 – that’s four dot three FOUR dot one two one – on September 28th, 2023 for MacOS, Windows, and Linux.
Slack released version 4.35.121 – that’s four dot three FIVE dot one two one – on October 24th, 2023 for MacOS, Windows, and Linux.
Notice the .34 and .35 difference. That’s super important, and is the entire basis of the issue here. Make sure you remember that 34 is not 35, and 35 is not 34. Following so far? Good.
The snap store has 4.34.121 marked as ‘latest’ with a release date of October 24th, 2023. See the problem here? The 34, not 35, released on October 24th, which is the 35 (not 34, remember, they’re different!) release date?
If it isn’t a coincidence that snap is one release behind and perfectly timed it to be out of date exactly when they posted it, then there’s an issue. Otherwise, if it’s just a coincidence, I will be happy being told that “yeah, versions are wicked behind, it’s just a coincidence that upon updating the repo a new version came out and we just said oh well let’s send it with the old version”
