Each of our images which is released will be tagged with the version of the software they represent. Every release, we update the latest tag for each image and add a new release which has the corresponding version tag.

If we release Gaffer version 2.1.2, the following images would be uploaded:

We maintain mutable versions of latest, as well as the major, minor and bugfix versions of Gaffer. For reproducibility make sure to use the full version in your build metadata. For gaffer/gaffer-rest images, we also create a tag including the accumulo version, this allows for compatibility with Accumulo 1.9.3 in our tests. The -accumulo-1.9.3 tagged images are not published but can be build locally if required.

The release process is automated by GitHub actions.
