In Ubuntu, what's the difference between apt-get install eth vs. apt-get install cpp-ethereum?

They both seem to install the same packages but seemingly not the same versions.

In this context eth is the more updated version of cpp-ethereum.

cpp-ethereum was renamed to TurboEthereum in September 2015 by the core dev team.

TurboEthereum is now a full software suite that includes:

  • ++eth (eth), the mainline Ethereum CLI client
  • AlethOne (alethone), mainline miner
  • AlethZero (alethzero), powerful Ethereum client
  • Mix (mix), DApp IDE
  • and a number of other tools.
