Odoo depends on multiple platforms and libraries and is compatible with different versions of these dependencies. Different Odoo versions contain different components and versions of these components. For example database versions and Python versions have been changing in different Odoo versions. Here is a quick cheat sheet of the dependencies and their versions.
|Component||Odoo 13||Odoo 12||Odoo 11||Odoo 10|
|Docker image tag||13.0||12.0||11.0||10.0|
Above table contains these Odoo components:
Python environment. All Odoo server side code is written in Python. This version is very important to know what tools can be used with Odoo development.

Pip package Psycopg2 used for database connection.
Pip package Werkzeug used for Odoo http server.
Pip package lxml used for XML documents.
Pip package watchdog used for reloading modules on file changes.
Pip packages xlsxwriter and xlwt used for creating Excel-files in Odoo.

Clientside libraries are included in Odoo web-module static libraries. You can find these in Odoo source github path addons/web/static/lib, e.g. Bootstrap, jQuery and Backbone. The version of these libraries need to be checked from lib content source.
