Qdrant v1.0 Roadmap

Hi! This document is our plan for Qdrant development till its first enterprise-ready release.

Goals of the release:

  • Make API and Storage stable - ensure backward compatibility for at least one major version back.
    • Starting from the release, breaking changes in API should only be done with a proper deprecation notice
    • Storage should be compatible between any two consequent major versions
  • Achieve horizontal scalability - distributed deployment able to serve billions of points
  • Easy integration - make the user experience as smooth as possible
  • Resource efficiency - push Qdrant performance on the single machine to the limit

To build a solid foundation for future development, we decided to keep Qdrant as legacy-free as possible. That means that while switching to v1.0, some breaking changes are likely.

ETA of v1.0-rc is Q2 2022
