> The release notes value brevity, so let me try this on you:
> +    Note that the database binary data file formats are not backwards
> +    compatible, so once you have upgraded to MariaDB 10.1 you will
> +    not be able to switch back to any previous version of MariaDB or
> +    MySQL unless you have a proper database dump. Therefore, before
> +    upgrading, please make backups of all important databases with
> +    an appropriate tool such as <command>mysqldump</command>.
