There are several releases of Alpine Linux available at the same time.

Every 6 month we make a snapshot of edge and make a release. We support each stable release for a certain time, normally for 2 years. We can do security fixes beyond that on request and when patches are available.

The latest release of Alpine Linux is: 2.4.2 Release notes, git log
