How can we access javadocs for the various released versions of the DataONE API, not just the latest development version, and how do we know when a new version has been released?

DataONE makes Javadoc API documentation available for both released versions of the software and for the current development branch.

Note: DataONE is currently working to make javadocs available online for all released versions, and to consolidate the javadocs from different projects into one site for each version. Until then, below is the current situation.

Currently (as of June, 2013), DataONE only has the javadocs corresponding to unreleased (trunk) development versions online here. Since the api is only additive within a major version (and is still in version 1), while far from ideal, will provide the most complete and more thoroughly edited wording than what can be found in the earlier releases. In cases where new methods have been added, every attempt has been made to provide a @since annotation, so one would know when the method was added to the package. Other than bug fixes, DataONE is vigilant to preserve the behavior of individual methods to ensure compatibility with other versions.

Javadocs are now included in the release packages of d1_libclient_java, found at:, starting at v1.2.3.

To get those, download for the version you want, uncompress, and use your browser to point to the file docs/apidocs/index-all.html

Hope that helps.
