Which version should I use?
For this library, we recommend using API version v1 for new applications.
Each Cloud Java client library may contain multiple packages. Each package containing a version number in its name corresponds to a published version of the service.
We recommend using the latest stable version for new production applications, which can be identified by the largest numeric version that does not contain a suffix.

If you use an unstable release, breaking changes may be introduced when upgrading.
