Product Roadmap and releases

Implementation using ApiRTC versions before 5.0 will stop working on June 30th. Please update to later version 👉How to migrate ApiRTC version.

We acknowledge that you need stability from the ApiRTC library. Stability ensures that reusable components and libraries, tutorials, tools, and learned practices don't become obsolete unexpectedly. Stability is essential for the ecosystem around ApiRTC to thrive.

We also share with you the need for ApiRTC to keep evolving. We strive to ensure that the foundation on top of which you are building is continuously improving and enabling you to stay up-to-date with the rest of the web ecosystem and your user needs.

This document contains the practices that we follow to provide you with a leading-edge application development platform, balanced with stability. We strive to ensure that future changes are always introduced in a predictable way. We want everyone who depends on ApiRTC to know when and how new features are added and to be well-prepared when obsolete ones are removed.

Keep updated

ApiRTC versioning

ApiRTC version numbers indicate the level of changes that are introduced by the release. This use of semantic versioning helps you understand the potential impact of updating to a new version.

ApiRTC version numbers have three parts: major.minor.patch. For example, version 4.5.3 indicates major version 4, minor version 5, and patch level 3.

The version number is incremented based on the level of change included in the release.

Major Releases

Major releases contain significant new features, but minimal developer assistance is expected during the update. When updating to a new major release, you might need to run update scripts, refactor code, run additional tests, and learn new APIs.

Minor Releases

Minor releases contain new smaller features. Minor releases are fully backward-compatible; no developer assistance is expected during an update, but you can optionally modify your applications and libraries to begin using new APIs, features, and capabilities added in the release. We update peer dependencies in minor versions by expanding the supported versions, but we do not require projects to update these dependencies.


Patch releases are low-risk, bug-fix releases. No developer assistance is expected during an update.

Migrating your ApiRTC script

Check the current version of ApiRTC used in your web app

  • Go on your web app

  • Display the “developer tools” (see here how to display the developer tools in your browser)

  • Type the command below in the console tab prompt:


The result will show the ApiRTC version.

Note that using makes sure your ApiRTC library is always up-to-date.

Check the compatibility of your usage of the ApiRTC library with newer versions

Depending on the version you are using, the migration to a newer version might require some adaption of your code to remain fully functional. note that it might be an opportunity to take advantage of more efficient implementation as well.

Check the ApiRTC changelog to evaluate whether your code requires to be updated or not

Update your library version to 5.0.0

Vanilla JS implementation

In your HTML code, insert the ApiRTC library like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Node-based framework (ReactJS, VueJS, Angular, …)

For all node-based frameworks, do as follows:

Update the @apirtc/apirtc of your node-based application.

npm install @apirtc/apirtc:^5.0.0
