Java Interoperability Policy for Major Version Updates

Major version updates to libraries solve the API warts of old and bring shiny new APIs to address previous shortcomings—often in a breaking fashion. Updating an Android or Java app is usually a day or two affair before you reap the benefits. Problems arise, however, when other libraries you depend on have transitive dependencies on older versions of the updated library.

+Jesse Wilson offers candid insights from user perspective as well:

Ultimately, we fight for the user!
New major versions of libraries usually bring with it breaking changes in the form of big improvements. This is great for new users, but a hassle for existing clients. This is a new policy to make things suitable for both parties.
