Juju install comes only with Gui v.0.3 Beta - docs wrong

https://juju.is/docs/gui <-- out of date

if I install latest Juju 2.6.8 I only have Gui v0.3 available on Ubuntu 18.04

root@juju:~# juju gui
Dashboard 0.3.0 for controller “maas-controller” is enabled at:

root@juju:~# juju upgrade-gui
Juju Dashboard at version 0.3.0

So how do I get latest gui? Why isnt it shipping with latest gui by default?

Thanks for bringing that up, those docs are woefully out of date.

0.3.0 is the most recent version of the new Dashboard. The GUI in those docs is no longer available.

Utterly confusing especially since every documetation by juju and tutorials of other people are using the ‘old’ gui.

I’m updating the documentation for that link above right now, I’ll post back once it’s updated.

That documentation has now been updated to be more representative of the current dashboard. We’ll continue to improve these over time :+1:

It’s definitely poor practice for us to have a new version of something, give it the same name (“gui”) and an older version (0.3). It would be better for us to have called this 2.0b2 for example, so it’s clear it’s in-progress but also that it’s newer than what went before.

I agree, but yea in theory you can do whatever you want, as long as it’s documented and ideally follows common sense.
Documentation is key
