Client driver and server version compatibility
Backward compatibility between Vertica server and client drivers works in both directions; Vertica server is compatible with all previous versions of client drivers, and all new client drivers are compatible with most versions of Vertica server. This compatibility lets you upgrade your Vertica server without having to immediately upgrade your client software, and use new client software with older versions of Vertica. Occasionally, however, individual features of a new server version might be unavailable through older drivers.
