Subject Re: Phoenix 4 to 5 Upgrade Path

What version of Phoenix 4 are you coming from?

Of note, if you're lagging far behind, you'll get bit by the column 
encoding turning on by default in 4.10 [1]

In general, before we update the system catalog table, we take a 
snapshot of it, so you can roll back (although this would be manual). In 
terms of testing as a community, we only do testing back two releases. 
After that, your mileage may vary.
