Will a Widget I build break when I upgrade like an extension?

Curious to understand if I build a widget, could it potentially not work if I upgrade to future versions of Qlik Sense.

Thanks!

Both the Widget API and Extension API does not _break_ between releases.

We could however at some point deprecate a method in both APIs where we give ample time for a developer to upgrade their code to fit with the replacing method.

This is quite rare and not something we do without careful consideration and with a replacement method in place.
