Detailed Description

As of SleuthKit 4.5.0 database schema versions are two part: Major.Minor. This versioning schema is based on semantic versioning, but without using the patch number (in practice it is always the default value of zero for case database versions).

The major part is incremented for incompatible changes, i.e., the case database will not be usable by an older version. For example, the major number should be incremented if tables and/or columns are removed, the meanings of values changes, or new records are added to lookup tables that will not be convertible to older versions of the corresponding Java enums.

The minor version is incremented for compatible changes that are usable by older versions of the SleuthKit, although the new schema may not be fully taken advantage of. For example, adding an index should be backwards compatible: an older version of the software will still be able to open and use the case database, but query performance may or may not be affected. Also, adding a column to a table should be backwards compatible as older versions of the software should simply ignore it.
