Zilliz is proud to announce the release of Milvus v1.0. After months of extensive testing Milvus v1.0, which is based on a stable version of Milvus v0.10.6, is available for use.
Milvus v1.0 offers the following key features:
See the Release Notes for additional Milvus v1.0 features.
Milvus is an ongoing open-source software (OSS) project. Its first major release has the following implications for users:
Thanks in part to sponsorship from Zilliz, the Milvus community will provide bug fix support for Milvus v1.0 until December 31st, 2024. New features will be available only in releases following v1.0.
See The Milvus release guideline for information about release cadences and more.
Beginning with v1.0, Milvus' toolchain will be a primary development focus. We plan to create the necessary tooling and utilities to meet the needs of the Milvus user community.
Stability makes integrating Milvus with AI ecosystems a breeze. We are seeking further collaboration between the Milvus community and other AI-focused OSS communities. We encourage contributions to the new AI ASICs (application-specific integrated circuits) in Milvus.
We believe Milvus has a bright future thanks to the following factors:
We have drafted community charters to help guide, nurture, and advance the Milvus community as our technology and user base grows. The charters include several technical decisions made to attract more participants to the community.
We are thrilled to partner with the open-source software community to build the next-generation cloud data fabric made for AI. Let's get to work!
