Versioning

This library follows Semantic Versioning .

This library is considered to be General Availability (GA) . This means it is stable; the code surface will not change in backwards-incompatible ways unless absolutely necessary (e.g. because of critical security issues) or with an extensive deprecation period. Issues and requests against GA libraries are addressed with the highest priority.
