Experimental Features

Major new features in the Legato Application Framework are introduced as experimental features at first. This allows you to play around with them and test them out in a developmental capacity without having it affect production targets. Once the feature is "broken in" and fully tested we will release it as a production read feature.

Each new feature will have it's own set of documentation that will walk you through:

  • Getting Started - how to install/enable the new feature in Legato
  • Concepts - Overview and Architecture information about the feature
  • API Guides - Links and information on using the APIs exposed with the new feature
  • Tools - Links and documentation on any tools included with the new feature.
  • HowTo - Documentation and sample apps demonstrating the new feature.

The following are our current list of new experimental features in Legato

Feature Description Maturity First Release Version
Remote-procedure Call Legato RPC framework Alpha Legato 19.04.0
IoT Keystore Key Management API Legato IoT Keystore API Alpha Legato 20.04.0

Maturity Descriptions:

  • Alpha - the feature is still under development and should not be used on production targets as the underlying functionality as well as the APIs may change in future releases.
  • Beta - the feature is complete and being tested. Final bugs and issues are being resolved; functionality and APIs are stable and will not change at this point.

Any feedback on these features is welcomed, please post on the Legato forum.
