Stemcell Release Notes

This topic provides links to release notes for stemcells that are currently being used with Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF).

Before you upgrade PCF, always verify that any tiles that you have installed, either from Pivotal or a partner, are compatible with the version of PCF you are deploying and its supported stemcells. For more information on checking PCF and stemcell compatibility, see Tile Compatibility in the Upgrade Checklist.

PCF uses the following types of stemcells:

To find out which stemcell version is used by a product tile version, check the release notes or the Pivotal Network download page for the tile.

Ubuntu Trusty Stemcells

Note: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty) stemcells are reaching end-of-support in April 2019. Starting in September 2018, Pivotal and its partners will begin releasing product tiles for PCF that support Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial) stemcells instead. Using supported stemcells is necessary to avoid exposure to security vulnerabilities.

The following Ubuntu Trusty stemcell lines are used with PCF tiles.
