DocumentationGuidesUsing the latest runtimeOverview


Basically there are two types of wolkenkit versions: On the one hand there are the stable versions, that have a version number such as 1.0.0, 2.0.0 and so on, on the other hand there is the version latest.

The stable versions are intended for developers who build applications with wolkenkit, whereas latest is a continuously updated version which includes features that are not yet officially available. In most cases you should use a stable version and pin the runtime in your application's package.json file. This way you ensure that your application can be run in a reproducible way.

Be careful with latest

Please note that the latest runtime is updated frequently and is therefore not guaranteed to work reliably at all times. This means that unexpected things may happen that could affect the stability and even the runability of your application. Use at your own risk.

However, from time to time you may want to use the latest runtime of wolkenkit to evaluate new features that have not yet been officially released, but will be part of the next stable version. For this you can use latest as the runtime version.

This guide will walk you through the steps you need to do to use the latest runtime. First, let's start with installing the latest runtime.
