Description (last modified by westram)

Database versioning

  • there is some versioning done in ad_save_load.c (e.g. in gb_write_bin_rek()), but this is only used to handle changes to the low level DB format
  • need to do semantic versioning
    • mainly needed for NT_dbrepair.cxx. When a DB bug is fixed there and the fixed database is used with an older ARB version, the bug may be re-inserted into the DB.
    • ARB should refuse to load DBs with a newer semantic version
    • Save new DBs with different low level version, to avoid that DB can be loaded with previous ARB versions
