Quality Assurance


  • Is it possible to migrate from the previous release? If so, how?
    • Yes, no specific steps outside of API adjustments are needed.


  • Is this release compatible with the previous release?
    • This release breaks both run-time and compile-time compatibility of generated Java code. Code generated with Fluorine codegen will not load in previous releases and code generated using previous releases of codegen will not load in Fluorine.
  • Any API changes?
    • Code generated with this release is API-incompatible with code generated by previous releases and requires some mechanic adjustment of users.
    • Both DOM and Binding APIs have stopped using CheckedFuture in favor of either ListenableFuture and FluentFuture, making it easier for asynchronous users to create processing pipelines.
    • RFC6021 versions of ietf-inet-types and ietf-yang-types have been removed
  • Any configuration changes?
    • No
