About KLTS

KLTS (Kubernetes Long Term Support)

Kubernetes being an enterprise infrastructure, you should not use a version that is no longer maintained. KLTS maintains the versions that Kubernetes community drops officially. Simply upgrading to the KLTS patch version can enable you avoid bugs caused by newer official versions of Kubernetes, no worry about introducing features that are not currently available, and your infrastructure based on Kubernetes will be more stable.

The KLTS process is fully hosted on GitHub, and you can simply Fork the project and build your own version of Kubernetes. The build artifacts are all stored on GitHub, the images in the GitHub Package, and the RPM and Deb packages in the repos branch of the same repository.

KLTS will maintain a release for at least two years after the official end of maintenance, to mainly patch CVE vulnerabilities and more serious bugs.
