Can I use Couchbase Lite 3.0 with an older Gateway?

I’m using CBLite on iOS in Swift. Is it safe or advisable to update to CBLite 3.0 if the Sync gateway isn’t also updated?

I’m not certain of the Sync Gateway version but it’s about a year old. Let’s just say I move faster than the backend devs.

You can update to Couchbase Lite 3.0 in your Swift application as it’s backward compatible with 2.8. For new Sync Gateway functionality, you would obviously need to update Sync Gateway to 3.0. I have several apps running with Couchbase Lite 3.0 in my mobile app but still using Sync Gateway 2.8 and they work without issues.


Couchbase Lite 3.0 is compatible with SG 2.8 so there shouldn’t be an issue.
