Developer’s Guide#

This discusses information relevant to developing Py-ART.


Py-ART follows semantic versioning in its version number. This means that any Py-ART 1.x release will be backwards compatible with an earlier 1.y release. By “backward compatible”, we mean that correct code that works on a 1.y version will work on a future 1.x version. It’s always possible for bug fixes to change behavior or make incorrect code cease to work. Backwards-incompatible changes will only be allowed when changing to version 2.0. Such changes will be proceeded by FutureWarning as appropriate. For a version 1.x.y, we change x when we release new features, and y when we make a release with only bug fixes.
