The final patch release in this series was Base-188.8.131.52, released on 14 September, 2018. Version 3.14.12 was the last release in the 3.14 series before new development was focused on the 3.15 series. Patch releases in the 3.14.12 series were provided to fix bugs and make minor changes to the functionality but did not add major new features.
The following documents cover EPICS Base version 3.14.12 and subsequent patch releases. Additional documentation can also be found in the documentation subdirectory of the distribution source code.
NOTE: These documents may be revised at any time without generation of a new source release. In particular the Known Problems page will be updated with patches for any serious bugs discovered after the final release date, up until the next version of the software is released.
