Developers need some guide posts for when they can expect certain milestones to be reached by the upstream teams. We will try to keep the sections below up to date with the what we know and add definite dates if possible.
- 1.0.0 - The Substrate 1.0.0 stable release is the recommended way to get started developing on Substrate.
