01

The rolling release is best suited for networking labs, as well as home routers of advanced users and non-critical production routers.

It’s not guaranteed to be stable is likely to uncaught bugs. We try not to break it, but sometimes it may not be able to boot or load the config, so you should have console access to the router before upgrading. VyOS image management system makes it easy to revert to an older image if upgrade goes wrong as long as you can access the router console: just pick a different image in the bootloader menu.

02

Testing it is really important, because it helps us find and fix bugs before they make it into an LTS release. We encourage everyone to try your config with it and report the findings, or run it on a router that handles some real traffic. Active testers are eligible for contributor subscriptions too.

03

Rolling releases are built from the git branch named “current”. To build your own, you should clone https://github.com/vyos/vyos-build and follow the instructions from its README.

You will not have to build every package from source because we provide a repository with latest packages and the build scripts are set to use them by default, unless you specify a different package source in the configure script options.
