Apache APISIX has grown as a community from the first day of open source and has quickly become the most active open source API gateway project in the world. These achievements cannot be achieved without the joint efforts of our community partners.
"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." The Apache APISIX Community Weekly Report hopes to help community members better understand the weekly progress of the Apache APISIX community and facilitate everyone to participate in the Apache APISIX community.

Good first issue
Description: We currently hardcore the APISIX version in the blog or doc, which has misled some newcomers when they read an old blog version. This also makes updating the latest APISIX version in the doc harder, because we need to change several places.
Let's add a static file containing the version numbers, and provide a simple one-liner command to get the version number in the doc. The one-liner should be very simple so that we can copy & paste it everywhere.
