This time we decided to bump the number to 1.0 to switch to a common versioning pattern. WAL-G 1.0 is compatible with its versions v0.2.0+. Also, WAL-G 1.0 can restore WAL-E backups and WALs. Good news for non-PostgreSQL databases: WAL-G is now production-ready for MS SQL, MySQL databases, meanwhile the API can be changed in future releases. MongoDB and Redis support is in the beta stage.
