Open Telekom Cloud API Backward Compatibility

Open Telekom Cloud uses the incremental updating mechanism in API maintenance to ensure API inheritance. Open Telekom Cloud will provide an interim solution for APIs to be deleted and inform users of the API deletion.

Open Telekom Cloud uses the mature metadata mechanism of the OpenStack community or peripheral independent module expansion to ensure that APIs of the new version are compatible with those of earlier versions.

API change history is released with the version release, allowing users to clearly know the API updates.
