Release 4.1: Upgrade Requirements

The log file format changed in the Berkeley DB 4.1 release.

All of the access method database formats changed in the Berkeley DB 4.1 release (Btree/Recno: version 8 to version 9, Hash: version 7 to version 8, and Queue: version 3 to version 4). The format changes are entirely backward-compatible, and no database upgrades are needed. Note that databases created using the 4.1 release may not be usable with earlier Berkeley DB releases.
