Developer Information


The kubernaut command line application uses Calendar Versioning ("CalVer") for releases.

  • The version scheme is ${YYYY}.${MM}.${DD}[-${GIT_COMMIT}].
  • Latest releases always have the ${GIT_COMMIT} appended after a dash.
  • Latest releases are any build from master branch that passes CI tests.
  • FUTURE - Stable release cadence has not been determined but WILL HAVE the form ${YYYY}.${MM}.${DD} without the ${GIT_COMMIT} appended.
