Note: This document references terminology defined at http://semver.org.
Regular MINOR releases of gRPC-Go are performed every six weeks. Patch releases to the previous two MINOR releases may be performed on demand or if serious security problems are discovered.
The gRPC-Go versioning policy follows the Semantic Versioning 2.0.0 specification, with the following exceptions:
A MINOR version will not necessarily add new functionality.
MINOR releases will not break backward compatibility, except in the following circumstances:
In these cases, APIs MAY be changed or removed without a MAJOR release. Otherwise, backward compatibility will be preserved by MINOR releases.
For an API marked as DEPRECATED, an alternative will be available (if appropriate) for at least three months prior to its removal.
