Previous Production Releases
Candidate releases are packages of the API related files that are created automatically from our master development branch.
These official releases are an indicator to the API consumer that this API version, if proven to be stable enough and passes all levels of testing (both internally and externally will be in good standing to promote to Production.
There is less chance of a candidate release becoming out of date as any new functionality will be added to a subsequent development snapshot.
Depending on the nature of any bug fixes required in a candidate release, the candidate version will either be corrected or superseded with a new version for release.
Development snapshots are packages of the API related files that are created automatically from our master development branch.
These snapshots are not official by any means. Although these files would have undergone a certain level of automated testing, they would not have gone through a complete cycle of testing that is performed normally during any subsequent stages of deployment.
There is also an increased likelihood that development files will become out of date more frequently as new functionality and code fixes are applied.
