Versions and compatibility

Compatibility​

In short, almost everything is compatible with almost everything. We rarely change the core protocols that various components use to communicate.

You might encounter specific restrictions when following the documentation, for example, some of our data models might call for a reasonably recent version of the warehouse loader.

tip

When in doubt, feel free to start a thread on Discourse.

Upgrades and deprecation​

Snowplow BDP

If you are using Snowplow BDP, you don’t need to deal with upgrading your pipeline, as we perform upgrades for you.

Some major upgrades might have breaking changes. In this case, we provide upgrade guides, such as the ones for RDB Loader.

From time to time, we develop better applications for certain tasks and deprecate the old ones. Deprecations are announced on Discourse.

We still keep the documentation for legacy applications for reference, along with guidance on what they have been replaced with.
