Hi Lewis,

Good question. In general the answer is any API that isn’t in the 3.15.x release series may need updates after we’ve made use of it for a while. Specifically though:

1. The extensible link support and JSON Link APIs (dbJLink.h and dbLink.h) may change to some extent, hopefully not by much but until we have fully implemented CA, DB and PVA links in the new JSON style we won’t know for sure.
2. The current JSON parser doesn’t handle 64-bit integer literals, but the above APIs were modified to allow that fix to be added without changing the method signatures. I don’t know if we modified the channel filter API though.

As always we can’t be sure about the future need for changes, but the above were the main items I was thinking about when I wrote the note below. If I’ve missed anything Michael Davidsaver may have some additional notes.

HTH,

- Andrew
