Istio releases information.
- The latest Istio monthly release is 0.5. It is downloaded when the following is used(*):
curl -L https://git.io/getLatestIstio | sh -
- The most recent ‘stable’ release is 0.2.12, the matching docs are archive.istio.io/v0.2/docs/
curl -L https://git.io/getIstio | sh -
We typically wait to ‘bake’ the latest release for several weeks and ensure it is more stable than the previous one before promoting it to stable.
(*) Note: security conscious users should examine the output of the curl command before piping it to a shell.
