I see the UMA releases have a (stable) tag, It always changes to the latest release. Why is that?
GA = General availability (a release); should be very stable and feature complete. This is generally tagged with the latest APM release number.
Stable = Release candidate; probably feature complete and should be pretty stable - problems should be relatively rare and minor, but worth reporting to try to get them fixed for release.
Stable releases are production-ready
Stable builds use different image and different helm/yaml/operator files
