JSS 3.30 shared libraries are not backward compatible with all older JSS 4.3.2 shared libraries. A program linked with older jSS 4.3.2 shared libraries will not work with JSS 4.4.0 shared libraries without recompiling or relinking. Furthermore, applications that restrict their use of jSS APIs to the functions listed in JSS Public Functions will remain compatible with future versions of the JSS shared libraries.
