Stability Policy

This project adheres to Semantic Versioning regarding the Python API compatibility, using the MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH version number format. To allow fast development of the WEBKNOSSOS server, the server-client interaction may need minor version upgrades to ensure full functionality. Starting from v1 and above, minor and patch upgrades won't require changes consuming the Python API as long as the following two points are followed:

  1. To ensure compatibility across minor and patch upgrades, please import everything directly from the webknossos module, not from submodules, e.g. use
    import webknossos as wk
    # or
    from webknossos import Dataset
  2. Methods, functions, classes and variables prefixed with an underscore are not part of the public API and may change anytime.
