ASP.NET API versioning gives you a powerful, but easy-to-use method for adding API versioning semantics to your new and existing REST services built with ASP.NET Web API. The API versioning extensions define simple metadata attributes and conventions that you use to describe which API versions are implemented by your services.

This package contains the API version-aware extensions for API Explorer in ASP.NET Web API, which are useful in a number of scenarios such as test automation or OpenAPI document generation.
