Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-1795) Upgrade google-cloud-bigquery to 0.23.0
Date Fri, 24 Mar 2017 17:13:41 GMT


Daniel Halperin commented on BEAM-1795:

It's a question of:

- upgrade fast & get perf improvements / new bug fixes for free vs
- upgrade slow & potentially complicate users' lives by introducing some change that breaks

My intuition is to upgrade dependencies more slowly unless I need something (a known bugfix
or new feature). I certainly would rather not be a beta tester for other projects ;). It also
depends on the dependency -- core Java libs and Maven plugins are much less likely to introduce
backwards-incompatible changes than some other libs.

I also suspect there is some aspect of language-dependence to this. Python has fewer tools
to integrate incompatible binaries (e.g., no shading AFAIK) -- so it may make sense to upgrade
faster assuming that's the standard Python community behavior.
