Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HBASE-17802) Add note that minor versions can add methods to Interfaces
Date Sun, 19 Mar 2017 21:54:42 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-17802?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

stack resolved HBASE-17802.
       Resolution: Fixed
     Hadoop Flags: Reviewed
    Fix Version/s: 2.0.0
     Release Note: Update our semver section to include a note on our allowing ourselves the
right to add methods to an Interface over a minor version as agreed to up on the dev list:
 "If a Client implements an HBase Interface, a recompile MAY be required upgrading to a newer
minor version (See release notes for warning about incompatible changes). All effort will
be made to provide a default implementation so this case should not arise."

Thanks for the reviews [~apurtell] and [~carp84] (Commit included Andrew's suggestion).
