Alpine Linux is a security-oriented lightweight Linux distro based on musl libc and BusyBox.

Alpine Linux has no fixed released cycle. Stable releases are typically supported normally for at least 2 years. Usually, the end of life date alternates between May 1st and November 1st. Only the latest releases get bug fixes and security fixes - older supported releases will only receive security fixes.

You can check which version you are currently running by running the command cat /etc/alpine-release.
