What does it mean when a YUI component is released as “experimental”?

0

In some circumstances, the YUI team may release a component in an experimental state. The YUI Charts Control is an example of a component that we’ve designated as experimental. An experimental component is one that has not been extensively tested and which may involve a technical approach that has not been proven out in other applications. We release such components to solicit community feedback and to begin the process of evaluating them in a wider context than we can provide within the YUI team. We designate them as experimental to communicate to implementers that significant work remains to be done before the project is ready for full production release on mission-critical applications. Some projects will evolve from experimental releases to beta and then to GA; other experimental projects may never evolve into production-quality components due to technical hurdles identified during community experimentation.
