   ESR (mwobensmith) 
   17.0.9esr released
   24.0esr released
   Note that going forward, 24esr releases will drop the third digit and follow the version scheme of 24.1esr, 24.2esr etc.
   if we chemspill will that be 24.0.1 or 24.1? ie. is the second digit reserved for "planned" releases?
   We will follow same versioning as normal release, so that would be 24.0.1
