A VOXL SDK Release its version number from the included voxl-suite meta package.
It is highly recommended to stick to using SDK Releases as-is since they are tested as a whole with System Image and voxl-suite together. If you are an experienced developer and know what you are doing then you can follow the instructions on the voxl-configure-pkg-manager page to configure VOXL to pull packages from development repositories, but we will not support software issues that arise from this.
Patch version bumps, e.g. V1.0.0 to V1.0.1 do not require a system image upgrade and can be upgrading in place with
apt update && apt upgrade. However, minor version bumps, e.g. V1.0.0 to V1.1.0 will require a complete system flash.
