Supported KKP Versions
KKP versions are expressed as x.y.z, where x is the major version, y is the
minor version, and z is the patch version.
KKP follows the Kubernetes release model and cycle, though for practical reasons
releases are a bit delayed to ensure compatibility with Kubernetes. In general,
the latest three minor versions of KKP are supported. With the release of a
new minor KKP version, support for the oldest supported KKP version is dropped.
New KKP versions are released in
a semi-fixed cadence. Actual release dates might vary due to a lack of changes to warrant a release
or due to urgent fixes that cannot wait for the next release window. As such,
the following release rhythms are given as orientation only and do not constitute guaranteed release dates.
- Patch releases are scheduled monthly.
- Minor releases are scheduled triannual.
- Major releases have no fixed schedule and will only happen when KKP changes in a substantial way.
