  What does it mean ("binary
  compatible")? Is it regarding the "shared libraries"?

Not specifically with shared libs, it is binary compatible,
API-wise.  Both shared and static libs (or separate objecs files
for that matter) will be compatible.

  Why v2.x.x is
  not mentioned there as "compatible"?

I don't recall.  Perhaps we made some minor incompatible change
to some corner of the code.
