I will check and get confirmation.

Just for clarity, you're pointing to the fact that the PureOS download page (https://pureos.net/download/) has an older ISO image which the downloads page you pointed to (https://downloads.puri.sm/live/gnome/2018-12-10/) has a more recent ISO release?

See https://lists.puri.sm/pipermail/pureos-project/2019-January/000015.html for an explanation. The new image just needs to be tested and the download webpage updated in that case.

I've tested the image and seen that it works. Uploading to the download page is a separate discussion and should probably wait until we've tested the OEM image. We can close this bug however by stating that there are two locations for new images, one is a directory that just holds the output of the build system, the other is the official, tested download image.

Uploading to the download page [..]

There is no actual upload, it's just a link that needs to be changed.

[...] should probably wait until we've tested the OEM image [...]

We don't actually offer the OEM image to anyone explicitly via the PureOS.net pages. People installing PureOS should use the live images in almost all cases, while the OEM image is for Purism internally. However, we don't stop anyone from downloading the OEM image either, if they go via the downloads.pureos.net directory.
So, if the live image was tested and works well, we can actually change the download link on our homepage.
The OEM image has to be tested before it can be the default one for new Librems though, so for that we'll definitely have to wait (and that's indeed a separate issue).
