Based on community consensus, the 0MQ 3.1.x release reverts a number of
features introduced in version 3.0. The major reason for these changes is
improving backward compatibility with 0MQ 2.1.x.

encouraged to upgrade to 3.1.

The 0MQ 3.1.x releases use ABI version 3.

* Wire format changes. The 0MQ 3.1 wire format is identical to that of 0MQ

  explicit routing, not for durable sockets.
