Beta Software Notice

Until WPGraphQL hits a 1.0.0 release, it is still considered beta software. This doesn't mean that the plugin isn't ready for use, it just means that there might still be bugs and that there might be breaking changes to the shape of the API or internal functions as we work toward a stable release.
