## Difference between 1.x and 1.x.x downloads
Version 1.7.x will be used for this example.
**NOTE:** this example applies to Docker images as well!
On our [downloads page]( you will see a 1.7 directory, as well as directories for 1.7.0, 1.7.1, 1.7.2, 1.7.3, 1.7.4, 1.7.5, and 1.7.6.
The 1.7 and 1.7.0 directories are **not** the same. The 1.7 directory is built on each merged commit to the [`release/v1.7`]( branch.
The 1.7.0 directory, however, is a build that was created when the [`v1.7.0`]( tag was created.
This means that 1.x downloads will change as commits are merged to their respective branch (think of it as a separate "master" branch for each release).
On the other hand, 1.x.x downloads should never change.
