Sarama provides a “2 releases + 2 months” compatibility guarantee: we support
the two latest stable releases of Kafka and Go, and we provide a two month
grace period for older releases. This means we currently officially support
Go 1.8 through 1.11, and Kafka 1.0 through 2.0, although older releases are
still likely to work.
Sarama follows semantic versioning and provides API stability via the gopkg.in service.
You can import a version with a guaranteed stable API via http://gopkg.in/Shopify/sarama.v1.
