Latest image Angstrom Distribution BBB 2GB eMMC 2013-09-04 reports as Angstrom v2012.12?


I installed the latest image Angstrom Distribution (BeagleBone Black - 2GB eMMC) 2013-09-04 from and installed it on my shinny new BBB, I waited for the 4 LEDs to go solid then I removed the SD card and booted it. When I SSH in, it reports the version as:
root@beaglebone:~# cat /etc/angstrom-version
Angstrom v2012.12 (Core edition)
Built from branch: angstrom-staging-yocto1.3
Revision: 2ac8ed60f1c4152577f334b223b9203f57ed1722
Target system: arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi

As well, when I do opkg update/opkg upgrade, it seems to be pulling packages from V2012.12 feed rather than V2013.12 feed.

Is this expected? Did I make a mistake somewhere? Did the new image really get burned to eMMC?

If you want the latest Angstrom, you need to checkout the following branch:
git checkout angstrom-v2013.12-yocto1.5

If you change the branch, be sure to delete or rename the complete build folder. You will also have to redo the config:
MACHINE=beaglebone ./ config beaglebone
MACHINE=beaglebone ./ update

Refresh you environment:
. ./environment-angstrom-v2013.12

Note, that line has a dot, space and then ./environment-angstrom-v2013.12

After that, you can now build V2013.12.
