Rolling release

Software development release model / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rolling release, also known as rolling update or continuous delivery, is a concept in software development of frequently delivering updates to applications.[1][2][3] This is in contrast to a standard or point release development model which uses software versions that must be reinstalled over the previous version.[clarification needed] An example of this difference would be the multiple versions of Ubuntu Linux versus the single and constantly updated version of Arch Linux.
