This document suggests that a mixed environment of 3.4 and 3.5 will work:


But you seem to be saying that it won't.

As a committer on the Lucene/Solr project (which uses ZK) I am wondering 
what we can tell our users about upgrading ZK.  I was under the 
impression from the wiki page I linked that they could do a rolling 
upgrade with zero downtime, where they do one ZK server at a time.  Are 
you saying that this is not possible?

The Upgrade FAQ that you linked doesn't say anything about 3.4 and 3.5 
not working together.  The only big gotcha I see there is 
ZOOKEEPER-3056, which has a workaround.

(I think of 4lw whitelisting as just a config problem with a new 
default, not a true upgrade issue)
