Important note about versions
Our goal for
<model-viewer> is to be a consistent, stable part of your web
platform while continuing to deliver cutting-edge features. We’ll always try
to minimize breaking changes, and to keep the component backwards compatible.
See our guide to contributing for more
information on backwards compatibility.
For your production site you may want the extra stability that comes by pinning to a specific version, and upgrading on your own schedule (after testing).
If you’re using unpkg.com, you can pin to a specific
version by specifying it in the URL. Replace the
<version> tag in the sample
below with the full version number (like
0.10.0) to be pinned to.
