Mature components are ready for full release, meeting the highest levels of quality and stability. Future releases of mature components will maintain a high quality bar with no breaking changes except when such changes are necessary to
make them more secure or guarantee future compatibility. Customers should be confident using mature components, knowing that when they upgrade from one version of the DeepEarth Toolkit to a newer version it will be a quick and easy process. Due to the heavy
focus on backward compatibility between versions, the bar for fixing bugs found in mature components is also considerably higher than any other Quality Band.
