Version Policy

When PHP comes to EOL and upgraded in major version (5.6 7.0), BEAR.Sunday still does not breack BC for application code. Even though the version number of PHP necessary to use the new module may rise, there is no need for destructive change for that.

BEAR.Sunday emphasizes that the code is clean and available for a long time.

Package version

The version of the framework does not lock the version of the library. The library can be updated regardless of the version of the framework.
