Alpine Linux is a security-oriented, lightweight Linux distribution based on musl libc and busybox.

There are several releases of Alpine Linux available at the same time. There is no fixed release cycle but rather a snapshot of edge is taken every 6 months as a release. Stable releases are supported normally for 2 years. Security fixes beyond that are on request and when patches are available.

Only the latest release (ie v3.16 at this time) gets bug fixes, prior supported releases only get security fixes.

More information is available on the Alpine Linux website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:
cat /etc/alpine-release

You can submit an improvement to this page on GitHub. This page has a corresponding Talk Page.
