Currently, there are 2 usable versions of Micro-manager: 1.4 and 2.0-gamma. These versions use the same code to interface to devices, but differ in their user interface, and file reading/saving code. 2.0-gamma is actively developed and maintained. 1.4 is no longer developed (except for the device support and the ASI diSPIM plugin).  If you start using Micro-Manager, it is recommended to use the latest nightly build of 2.0-gamma

Micro-Manager versions

Currently, there are 2 usable versions of Micro-manager: 1.4 and 2.0-gamma. These versions use the same code to interface to devices, but differ in their user interface, and file reading/saving code. 2.0-gamma is actively developed and maintained. 1.4 is no longer developed (except for the device support and the ASI diSPIM plugin).
