Notifications API stable?


#1

Hi,

is the Notifications API (atom.notifications.*) considered stable? It seems like this is the best way to post notifications from a package, yet it is not mentioned in the documentation.

The API seems pretty straightforward, so I suspect much change is to be expected…right?

Anything that isn’t in the official documentation should be considered experimental at best. A quick search of the issues list though revealed this:

So it is on the 1.0 roadmap. Do I suspect major changes will be made? No. Does that mean that it should be considered stable? No. There could be many changes made between now and when it is made public.

Technically, all of Atom shouldn’t be considered stable at this point really :grinning:
