You cannot rollback without cluster restart, not yet anyways.

If you cluster restart, you can go back from latest 0.20 release all
the ways to 0.20.0 I believe.  There were no changes in data format
changes.  You cannot go back beyond 0.20.x to 0.19.x.  Data format
changed between those versions.

Its looking like it might be possible to go back to 0.20.x from 0.89.x
or even 0.90.x its looking like since again no format changes.

Why you asking?
