Mattermost follows a monthly tick-tock release cycle, with a new version shipping on the 16th of each month in binary form.
Tick-tock refers to even-numbered releases (e.g., 5.24) containing new features, and odd-numbered releases (e.g., 5.25) containing only bug fixes and performance improvements.
The Feature Releases have new features added. These are even-numbered releases (e.g., 5.24).
The Quality Releases contain only bug fixes and performance improvements and are more stable than Feature Releases. These are odd-numbered releases (e.g., 5.25). It is highly recommended to upgrade to a Quality Release if your organization prefers stability over having the newest features and improvements.
