Component status

Here is a list of components of Bind10, together with their development status. The meaning of colors is simple:

  • Green: The component is considered in a good state and should be doing its job. It doesn't mean it won't be enhanced further or that there could be no bugs, but it is expected to be used by users.
  • Yellow: The component can be used (or, in some cases, there's no possibility not to use it), but some problems are to be expected.
  • Red: The code is there, but it is not expected to be run by users. You should wait for it to turn yellow at least.
