Subject [Lucene-java Wiki] Update of "BackwardsCompatibility" by Mark Miller
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2011 19:32:17 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Lucene-java Wiki" for change notification.

The "BackwardsCompatibility" page has been changed by Mark Miller:
http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-java/BackwardsCompatibility?action=diff&rev1=11&rev2=12

  
  A major release may introduce incompatible API and runtime changes.  Within minor versions,
the transition strategy is to introduce new APIs in release '''X.N''', deprecating old APIs,
then remove all deprecated APIs in release '''X+1.0'''. In some cases, especially with large
refactorings across major versions, there will be no deprecation path and you will need to
read CHANGES and a migration guide to migrate your code.
  
- Package-private APIs (e.g. methods without any modifier such as public or protected) and
those marked as experimental are not supported and thus exempt from these back-compatibility
requirements. They can change without warning or intermediate deprecation.
