Issue/Introduction

I see the UMA releases have a (stable) tag, It always changes to the latest release. Why is that? 

Resolution

See https://hub.docker.com/r/caapm/universalmonitoragent

What is the difference between GA and Stable build?

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
