Similarly in Python, if you are using PyPI and want to use the SDK for Python
with DirectRunner, add the following requirement to your setup.py file:
Additionally, you may want to depend on additional SDK modules, such as IO
connectors or other extensions, and additional runners to execute your pipeline
The Go SDK is accessible via Go Modules and calling go get from a module subdirectory:
go get github.com/apache/beam/sdks/v2/go/pkg/beam
Specific versions can be depended on similarly:
go get firstname.lastname@example.org/go/pkg/beam
Downloading source code
You can download the source code package for a release from the links in the
You mustverify the integrity
of downloaded files. We provide OpenPGP signatures for every release file. This
signature should be matched against the
KEYS file which contains the OpenPGP
keys of Apache Beam’s Release Managers. We also provide SHA-512 checksums for
every release file (or SHA-1 and MD5 checksums for older releases). After you
download the file, you should calculate a checksum for your download, and make
sure it is the same as ours.
Apache Beam generally follows the rules of
semantic versioning with exceptions. Version numbers use
the form major.minor.patch and are incremented as follows:
major version for incompatible API changes
minor version for new functionality added in a backward-compatible manner, infrequent incompatible API changes
patch version for forward-compatible bug fixes
Please note that APIs marked @Experimental
may change at any point and are not guaranteed to remain compatible across versions.
Additionally, any API may change before the first stable release, i.e., between
versions denoted 0.x.y.
2.7.0 was designated by the Beam community as a long term support (LTS) version. LTS versions are supported for a window of 6 months starting from the day it is marked as an LTS. Beam community will decide on which issues will be backported and when patch releases on the branch will be made on a case by case basis.
LTS Update (2020-04-06): Due to the lack of interest from users the Beam community decided not to maintain or publish new LTS releases. We encourage users to update early and often to the most recent releases.
