Gitpod Self-Hosted is released once a month, usually at the end of each month. The versioning schema is:
YYYY.MM.V. Each new version of self-hosted Gitpod includes all of the changes made to Gitpod up to the release date. This means that the self-hosted version of Gitpod is at most one month behind the SaaS version. Outside of the regular monthly releases, hot-fix releases are possible to add functionality or fix bugs. Hot fix releases increment the
V in the aforementioned versioning schema.
Gitpod is committed to supporting the last 2 versions of self-hosted Gitpod with patches and security updates.
New versions are first rolled out to all users that are on the
community license, i.e. are on the stable branch. Customers with a paid license receive the newest version one week later.
For each release, we validate that core Gitpod workflows function as expected via a series of automated and manual tests. These tests are performed on different Gitpod installations running on our reference architectures outlined in our guides. This should help ensure that Gitpod works for you, assuming your architecture is close to the reference architecture.
