Do old versions of Mastodon ever… …become incompatible with newer ones?

@katja if it's left un-updated for a very long time it's possible, or if newer instances enable an unsupported feature like the authorized status one from a while back that wont work with older ones?

@catgoat Right, right! I'm… …I think only 8-10 months behind right now, so!!

@katja i am a little behind too!! I definitely recommend doing a trial upgrade on a backup copy of your server, altho last time I reinstalled everything from scratch and just copied over the DB
