Feature complete

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A feature complete version of a piece of software has all of its planned or primary features implemented[1] but is not yet final due to bugs, performance or stability issues.[2]

Usually a feature complete software still has to undergo beta testing and bug fixing, as well as performance or stability enhancing before it can go to release candidate, and finally gold status.
