Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9930) Ability to skip a major version while upgrading
Date Wed, 29 Jul 2015 20:44:05 GMT


Aleksey Yeschenko commented on CASSANDRA-9930:

With 3.X, what we've been promising *so far* is to treat the increments as we are treating
minors now. You should be able to jump from 3.1 to 3.12 directly.

Not sure if 3.0 -> 3.1 is something we *must* support. We will probably want to drop a
whole lot of compatibility luggage that had been added for CASSANDRA-8099 sake (a lot).

2.1 to 3.0, that we should definitely support, though - there is just no good reason not to,
given how close 2.1 and 2.2 are. The benefits outweigh the hassles of extra testing.

we will need the ability to upgrade from stable release to stable release, skipping a single
version in the process.

> I would recommend we code this so that we can upgrade 2.1 directly to 3.0 as well, it's
probably too much work to do this for versions prior to that.
