Apache Zest™ (Java Edition) 2.1
Signed by Paul Merlin, PGP ID:
7D0391AC, Announcement and Release-Notes
To keep backward compatiblity, this version still use
org.qi4j.*Java packages and Maven coordinates.
Please note that this will change in 3.0.
Apache Zest™ versioning tries to stick to;
- For changes in the 3rd version digit, for instance from 1.3.1 to 1.3.2, only bug fixes have occurred.
- For changes in the 2nd version digit, for instance from 1.3.1 to 1.4, more features have been added.
- For changes in the 1st version digit, for instance from 1.3.1 to 2.0, incompatibilities have been introduced.
However, this will only be true for APIs. For SPIs and especially Runtimes, we reserve the right of incompatible changes between releases in the second digit.
We reserve the right that these dependencies on other systems may change between releases. For instance, a change between 1.1 and 1.2 was that CGLib was dropped and replaced by ASM as a new dependency.
