ABI compatibility is not preserved similarly to the API compatibility. ABI compatibility is only guaranteed between patch releases. Recompilation is required for both minor and major releases.
ABI compatibility is preserved similarly to the API compatibility. ABI compatibility is guaranteed between patch and minor releases. Recompilation is only require for major releases or to utilize new APIs added in minor releases.
