No, they do not, at least not technically, this is the reason why I
created different variables for jdbc versioning.
This allows us to have split releases in the future, so we can release a
1.0.1 C-code bugfix while keeping jdbc2 at 1.0.0, or issue a 1.1.0 jdbc2
feature update while keeping server side at 1.0.0, or such.
The pgjdbc folks currently follow the server version MAJOR and MINOR,
and use different build numbers for micro-updates, while PostgreSQL
itsself seems to use MICRO versions as we do.
However, I think we should try to keap at least the MAJOR in sync, and
an incompatible change in the protocol between client and server (means:
the canonical representation) should trigger a MAJOR version increase.
Honestly, our project is small enought that it should work without a
formal release policy. :-)
