How can I build parity as a stable version from source?

git clone https://github.com/paritytech/parity
cd parity
cargo build --release

gives me

version Parity/v1.9.0-unstable-51e6e0b4b-20171230/x86_64-linux-gnu/r‌​ustc1.22.1

which is unstable and

git checkout tags/v1.7.11

gives me this version:

version Parity/v1.7.11-unstable-a5ed4cfc4-20171228/x86_64-linux-gnu/‌​rustc1.22.1

which is unstable as well. How can I build the stable version from source (latest should be 1.7.11)

Version v1.7.11 was actually stable. -unstable part of the name is a bug and we've recently fixed it. Version v1.7.12 should display the version properly.


unstable just says that the version was compiled from source. :)

To get a meaningful string, compile parity with the additional flag --features final
