AI Versions

Autoenhance regularly releases improvement to it's AI as a new version - giving you the flexibility and control to choose the cadence that suits your needs

Specifying Versions

Floating Version

By default your images will be enhanced with the latest version of the AI. You can manually specify to only get the latest bug fixes using the floating version number i.e 4.x to the ai_version field

In this example you would only get the latest bug fix for version 4 of the AI.

Note AI versions below version 4.0 do not support floating version numbers

Fixed Version

If you want to ensure the AI version never changes before you've had a chance to test out the new one, then you can use fixed versions. Simply specify the version number in full.
