Module: Concurrent::Edge

Defined in:



Edge Features are under active development and may change frequently.

  • Deprecations are not added before incompatible changes.
  • Edge version: major is always 0, minor bump means incompatible change, patch bump means compatible change.
  • Edge features may also lack tests and documentation.
  • Features developed in concurrent-ruby-edge are expected to move to concurrent-ruby when finalised.

A submodule for unstable, highly experimental features that are likely to change often and which may never become part of the core gem. Also for new, experimental version of abstractions already in the core gem.

Most new features should start in this module, clearly indicating the experimental and unstable nature of the feature. Once a feature becomes more stable and is a candidate for inclusion in the core gem it should be moved up to the Concurrent module, where it would reside once merged into the core gem.

The only exception to this is for features which replace features from the core gem in ways that are breaking and not backward compatible. These features should remain in this module until merged into the core gem. This will prevent namespace collisions.
