We're currently on our way to change the way we release Docker Images for Skytable and we'd like to share what we plan to do so that we can integrate any feedback that our users may have.
What happens today
Today, we maintain three sets of tags for images published on Docker Hub. These are:
latest: This tag is built on every push to the
nextbranch on GitHub
next: This tag is the same as latest
vX.Y.Z: These tags match the git tags that are made whenever we release a new version
As you can see the
next tags are ambiguous as they do the same thing. However, several Docker images use the
latest tag that marks the latest release (an actual release). As a consequence of this convention, several users have been in a state of confusion regarding the
latest tag with Skytable's Docker images.
We plan to:
- Publish new images to the
skytable/skytableDocker hub repository
latesttag will reflect the latest "stable" release
nexttag will reflect the latest code on the
vX.Y.Zwill correspond to all the releases made
- We will start releasing Docker images for 32-bit and 64-bit (we already release 64-bit versions today) Intel platforms
- We will start releasing Docker images for ARM64 and ARMv7
We hope that these changes will make the use and creation of Docker images more accessible, coherent and convenient. However, we really want you to share any feedback that you may have through one of our chat channels or by tagging
@skytabledb on Twitter. We hope to hear from you soon!
