Subject Backwards compatibility (was: Re: Issue with multi valued attributes)
Date Wed, 17 Jan 2007 13:07:01 GMT
Since we made the change to LockableAttributesImpl etc in shared-ldap 
this will now impact the store which has serialized objects.

The db for 1.0.0 and 1.0.1 are not compatible.  You must export the DB 
then reimport it to goto 1.0.1.

We can rollback this change in 1.0.x.  There was no need to rename these 

This is the reason why I say not to change the 1.0.x branch drastically 
and only to fix bugs.  Changing the name of a class in ldap-shared was 
fine for 1.5.x but not for 1.0.x.  In general don't get too enthusiastic 
in the 1.0 branch.

Should we roll back this useless change that breaks backwards 
compatibility between 1.0.1 and 1.0.0?
