Debian – Since when apt install can be used over apt-get install


I've find recently that we can use the more recent apt install, remove… over the ancestral apt-get install. I didn't know that before. Because I have some scripts that install packages accross wide range of OSes, i would like to know since when apt install is available in Debian and Ubuntu?

Since Jessie — the now stable release (Debian 8.0).

Note that this wrapper, while useful, does not yet cover 100% of what older apt-whatever programs do; namely there's no apt cache currently.
