This is not the first time that NEWS.txt tells you something that raises
more questions than it answers. I continue to maintain that it would be
useful to link to JIRA ticket(s) which are the reason for instructions in

That said, per driftx these are the two ~1.2.8 era tickets which mean you
should upgrade from 1.2.9 or later. : Upgrading to
cassandra-1.2 with a dead LEFT state from 1.1 causes problems : Don't pull schema
from higher major nodes; don't push schema to lower major nodes

Disclaimer : You probably don't want to upgrade a real cluster to 2.0
anytime in the next 5 or so months.
