Today we proudly announce the release of Milvus v1.0. After 8 months of painstaking tests and trials by hundreds of Milvus community users, Milvus v0.10.x finally became stable, and it’s now time to release Milvus v1.0 based on Milvus v0.10.6.
Milvus v1.0 brings with it the following features:
See the Release Notes for more of the v1.0 features.
Milvus is an ongoing Open-Source Software (OSS) project. Still, we believe the first major release is of crucial importance to our community users for the following reasons:
Milvus v1.0 is our first Long-Term Support (LTS) version. The Milvus community will provide bug fix support for Milvus v1.0 till December 31st, 2024 (sponsored by Zilliz). New features will be available only in releases subsequent to v1.0.
See The Milvus Release Guideline for more information about the release strategy of Milvus.
While the development of the Milvus engine is rapidly iterating, we have not spent much time on the toolchain of Milvus. As of v1.0, we plan on developing necessary tooling and utilities for the Milvus users. Please find more details in The Toolchain SIG.
A stable version makes integration with the AI ecosystem a breeze. Now, we are looking for more collaboration between the Milvus community and other AI OSS communities. We also encourage support for new AI ASICs in Milvus.
We believe a bright future of Milvus lies with the following factors.
To continuously nurture and advance the Milvus community, we have drawn up our community charters, whereby several technical decisions have been made to attract more participants into the community.
Let’s work together to build the next-generation cloud data fabric made for AI!
