 This will join "directory" and "file.txt" using the Windows path separator,

+## Stability
+The `path` package is used by many Dart packages, and as such it strives for a
+very high degree of stability. For the same reason, though, releasing a new
+major version would probably cause a lot of versioning pain, so some flexibility
+is necessary.
+We try to guarantee that **operations with valid inputs and correct output will
+not change**. Operations where one or more inputs are invalid according to the
+semantics of the corresponding platform may produce different output over time.
+Operations for which `path` produces incorrect output will also change so that
+we can fix bugs.
+Also, the `path` package's URL handling is based on [the WHATWG URL spec][].
+This is a living standard, and some parts of it haven't yet been entirely
+solidified by vendor support. The `path` package reserves the right to change
+its URL behavior if the underlying specification changes, although if the change
+is big enough to break many valid uses we may elect to treat it as a breaking
+change anyway.

 ### Why doesn't this make paths first-class objects?
