I'm a newbie to zeromq, although have a lot of past experience with 
messaging APIs.

I've found rfc.zeromq.org...with the specifications...but I have a 
couple of questions.   If this info exists somewhere, please just point 
me in the right direction.

1) Which specifications are implemented by which version of zeromq? 
(e.g.  3 implements x, 4 implements x + y, next release implements z, etc)
2) Does the zeromq versioning mean something in terms of API 
guarantees?...i.e. if I use the api documented for 3, will I need to 
change to move to (e.g.) 4?  If there are rules here, do the bindings 
follow them as well?
3) For the various bindings...how do I tell which version of zeromq they 
require/support?   I've looked for and not seen this info on the java 
binding...and maybe it's clearly presented somewhere on other bindings, 
but I couldn't find it here [1].
