Comment:

It's not always possible to make a new series (e.g. 1.3.x) compatible with an older series (e.g. 1.2.x). The server tends to be more backwards compatible than the client (i.e. 1.3.x server will work with 1.2.x client but not vice versa).

That said, I agree there should be a warning when trying to connect to an older server.
