Alli Data Library releases follow semantic versioning guidelines. For more information on how we use semantic versioning, see
This document serves as a comprehensive record of all releases, providing a snapshot of what's improved with in ADL 2.0.
PMG provides different support levels for different versions, which may include new features and bug fixes.
Active — We will patch regressions, new feature updates, new bugs, and include fixes for older bugs / quality improvements.
Critical — Newer minor versions transition the previous minor version into "Critical Support" with limited "security" releases for critical security and installation fixes.
Deprecated — ADL versions that are no longer maintained, nor supported via Alli Marketplace.

Best Practices for Upgrading
Because of our new version practice, we’ve outlined our best practices and expectations for ADL Users to upgrade as we continue to release new features and versions of Data Library.
Upgrading to a new patch versions
We expect all users to upgrade to patches as soon as they are available. When we refer to a “minor version” of Data Library such as v2.0, we are always referring to the latest available patch release for that minor version. We encourage teams to structure your development and production environments so that you can always install the latest patches of
Upgrading to new minor versions
During the official support period, minor versions, e.g. v2.1.0. Will remain available within Alli Marketplace. While we do not expect users to immediately upgrade to the newest minor versions as soon as they are available, there will always be some features and bug fixes only available at certain versions for users of the latest minor version.
All Data Library versions will be available as prereleases (release candidates) before the final release. “Release Candidates” are available for testing, in production-like environments (e.g. within Alli Marketplace), at least one week before the final release. For minor versions, we also aim to release one or more betas, which include new features and invite user feedback. It’s in your interest to help us test prereleases and betas-we need your help!
How Data Library uses semantic versioning
Like many software projects, Data Library follows semantic versioning, which defines three types of version releases.
Major versions: To date, Data Library has had two major version release: v1.0.0 and v2.0.0. When v3.0.0 is released, it will introduce new features, and functionality that has been announced for deprecation will stop working.
Minor versions, also called "feature" releases, include a mix of new features, behind-the-scenes improvements, and changes to existing capabilities that are backwards compatible with previous minor versions. They will not break code in your project that relies on documented functionality.
Patch versions, also called "bugfix" or "security" releases, include fixes only. These fixes could be needed to restore previous (documented) behavior, fix obvious shortcomings of new features, or offer critical fixes for security or execution issues. We are judicious about which fixes are included in patch releases, to minimize the surface area of changes.
We are committed to avoiding breaking changes in minor versions for end users of Data Library. Two Examples of breaking changes would be:
Additional Columns to datasources. These changes are relevant only to platform.
Alli Data Datasource updates due to 3rd Party API changes.
