# Release cycle

The current release cycle is aligned on a monthly basis. Pre-1.0.0 we target a MINOR release on or around the first day of each month. We try to hit the targets as closely as possible, while still delivering a quality release.

Pomerium uses Semantic Versioning (opens new window). In practice this means for a given version number vMAJOR.MINOR.PATCH (e.g. v0.1.0):

  • MAJOR indicates an incompatible API change,
  • MINOR indicates a new functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and
  • PATCH indicates a backwards-compatible bug fixe.

As Pomerium is still pre-v1.0.0, breaking changes between releases should be expected.

To see difference between releases, please refer to the changelog and upgrading documents.
