\section index_APIStability API Stability

Versions of QGIS prior to 1.0 did not guarantee API stability since the
application was undergoing rapid development of new features and we did not
want to commit ourselves to a fixed API. With the release of QGIS 1.0 we
guarantee a backwards compatible API for the 1.x and 1.0.x release series. 1.x
releases will be our 'unstable' development builds and 1.0.x releases our
'stable' (bugfixes and very minor tweaks only).
