Versions and Compatibility

The 2.0 line of GeoMesa will follow Semantic Versioning. It will continue to offer data compatibility, in that data written with older versions will still be readable. It will also offer API compatibility, in that any 2.0.x client code will be able to communicate with any 2.0.x server code, although using new features that are added may require updating both client and server code.


GeoMesa 2.0.2 supports upgrade in place from previous versions of 2.0.x, by updating the GeoMesa JAR versions. Ensure that JARs are updated in all clients and servers. See the upgrade guide for information on changes that may affect you after the update.
