Default Why is official release same as Long Lived?

Hello Guys,

I have noticed over the last two releases , that the version numbers for the official release is the same as Long Lived . Does anyone know why this is , Is it that the long lived has been dropped , because I have been using it and think it is a very good idea . Or is it just a typo on the web page ?

Best Regards

Milorad

Maybe because the users of a new kepler GPU's deserve a Long Lived release too.

Right, the long-lived support branch moved forward from 275.* to 295.*. 295.* will continue to be maintained for a while after the "official" release moves to a later branch.
