From the FAQ:
Will the journal file format be standardized? Where can I find an explanation of the on-disk data structures?
At this point we have no intention to standardize the format and we take the liberty to alter it as we see fit. We might document the on-disk format eventually, but at this point we dont want any other software to read, write or manipulate our journal files directly. The access is granted by a shared library and a command line tool. (But then again, its Free Software, so you can always read the source code!)
No, thanks. Text is universally forward- and backward-compatible. This monstrosity won't be.
