Jaap and Joerg are referring to the same stable branch, so any newer
version of 1.2.x than the one you compiled with (or newer 1.4.x than the
one you compiled it with). This makes sense because only important bug
fixes are moved from the development back into the newer stable branches
and no new features. I just didn't think we were verifying that bug
fixes never broke the ABI, although I can see why they never or at least
