My quick informal test suggests that they are *not* compatible at
the daemon level.

I have a spread segment configured for four nodes.  All nodes were
running 4.0.0rc2.  I killed one of the daemons, and re-started with
4.0.0.  It immediately crashed with an assertion failure in

I then killed all rc2 daemons and started only 4.0.0 daemons, and
everything so far appears to be fine.

Hope this helps someone,
