in JDBC drivers, can I just pick the newest one, regardless my database version, or do they have to match? Like, can you use the 9.4 driver with the 9.3 database?

I suspect it depends on the driver and database - read your release notes .... :)


@alexmiller: will do. Another question: is a stable Clojure version released yearly, or just on a 'when ready' basis?


@alexmiller: Congrats on 1.8.0-beta1!

we would like to reach 1.8 final before the conj


@borkdude: re: JDBC — very much depends on the DB and driver as @alexmiller said. For example MySQL 5.1.36 driver works with MySQL 5.5 and later but won’t work with 5.1 or 5.0 in all cases.
