#10357: archive version --- BOOST_ARCHIVE_VERSION -- change required ?
 Reporter: ingo.loehken@… | Owner: ramey

Milestone: To Be Determined | Component:
  Version: Boost 1.56.0 | serialization
 Keywords: archive version, serialization, | Severity: Problem

 as already mentioned on boost mailing list, there was a change in the
 boost archive version BOOST_ARCHIVE_VERSION from 10 to 11 from boost
 version 1.55 to 1.56.

 As far as i understand the versioning it should be used to protected
 against incompatibilities. Therefore, if there are no such changes, there
 is no need to adapt the versioning.

 At last, if there is a requirement, it would be nice to ducument it and
 add to release notes, so that while updating to next boost version
 problems can be detected before update.

 The serialization and archive library are used to store data inside a
 database. The database is accessed by different drtivers build upon
 different versions of boost. That means once acessed by library version
 11, 10 wont be avail anymore.

 Thats the reason to ask to make such changes explicit and try to
 understand, what needs to be modified to make 11 compatible with 10.

 Thanks, Ingo.
