The v2 JetStream client API is now stable! What does this mean? The clients that have provided the initial implementation and solicited feedback, including Go, JavaScript, C#, and Java, have finalized their breaking changes. If this is the first time you are hearing about this, check out the initial blog post and available examples.

The next steps include other clients implementing this new API as well as porting the Key-Value and Object Store APIs for clients that have implemented the v2 API in a separate package.
