Yup, 1.1.2 is the last one with 0.9 on-disk format compatibility. At a
minimum you'll need to go 0.9 -> 1.1.2, compact, and then step to
1.3.0 should be OK.

Also exactly what version you're migrating from will make a difference:

You may need to update your view code, query code as well, and it's
possible for non-valid utf-8 docs to be rejected also if they are
present. I am not sure how an upgrade handles that.

Benoit - you did a big upgrade a while back, do you remember what your
version stepping ended up requiring? IIRC you needed to go to 1.0.4
first, but I don't recall why.
