In the stable 15.04 release here, there are two files for BeagleBoneBlack to download: ubuntu-15.04-snappy-armhf+bbb.img.xz and ubuntu-15.04-snappy-armhf-bbb.img.xz

They have the same size, but the checksums differ. In the official manual, the -bbb image is mentioned. What is the difference between the two files?


There is no difference between the two except for the filename. One is 'armhf+bbb', the other is 'armhf-bbb', and one is a symlink to the other on the server. The reason we have both names is that we had pushed one of these names as the URL to publish on the website, then realized that the name we'd pushed was inconsistent with the overall naming scheme on releases.ubuntu.com.
