Is it possible to handle db4-created database file with db5 library? In
other words, if I rebuild an aplication against db5 and ship it to
stable Fedora, can I expect problems?
Oracle tries to keep the old on-disk format readable and usable by the
next libdb releases. From what I see from the changelogs:
The file format of 5.3.x should still be compatible with 4.8.x. Only
the log file format upgrade is needed (if used).
