Lucee 5.3 no longer has different update provider for snapshots and releases as 5.2 had.
on the update page you now see available releases and snapshots at the same time.
We did this to give a better overview of what is available for your current version (same for extension).

This includes the teaser on the overview page.

there is already a hotfix for 5.3.1.95 and because of that you are seeing this.

we are discussing atm if that new snapshot should give a new release or not, in the end it is still an edge case.

I would suggest a flag where a user can filter if they want to see only stable versions. I like the consolidation of the update providers, but I think there's a real use case for sys admins who only care about stable updates and we don't want them accidentally installing bleeding edge things on production.

I've added a fix for this issue. For a release & rc version it checks any update version available to the current version type then its show the update info in overview page otherwise its doesn't show any other updates of snapshot.
For both snapshot & beta versions , it checks the latest update of snapshot, if exist it displays the info.
