      Description

      Currently, incompatible changes in the node-to-node communication prevent rolling restarts of clusters.

      In order to fix this we should:

      1) use a framework that makes doing compatible changes easy
      2) have a policy of only making compatible changes between versions n and n+1*

      • Running multiple versions should only be supported for small periods of time. Running clusters of mixed version is not needed here.
