Subject important change in backward-compatibility testing
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2019 23:00:57 GMT
To fix GEODE-7168 I have modified the backward-compatibility framework 
to preserve periods in version names.  Prior to the change versions were 
in the form "100", "110", "120", etc.  Now they are "1.0.0-incubating", 
"1.1.0", "1.2.0", etc.

When requesting a VM that's running a particular version of Geode you 
need to use the dot notation.

     host.getVM(1, "1.9.0") /not host.getVM(1, "190")/

There is a new method in VersionManager for transforming a version 
string into the old notation if you need it.  See 
VersionManager.versionWithNoDots(versionString).  Use that if you need 
to parse a version into an integer.

On another note, please don't expect that these versions are reflected 
in the Versions class, which is primarily for noting changes in 
serialization.  For instance, our recent release 1.9.1 has no 
corresponding Version instance.
