As DWARF4 is not released the list of entries for DWARF4 and indeed the existence of DWARF4 must be considered speculative.

The versions applicable by section are, so far:

                      DWARF2    DWARF3 DWARF4
.debug_info             2         3     4
.debug_abbrev           -         -     -
.debug_frame            1         3     3
.debug_str              -         -     -
.debug_loc              -         -     -
.debug_line             2         3     3
.debug_aranges          2         2     2
.debug_ranges           x         -     -
.debug_pubtypes         x         2     2
.debug_pubnames         2         2     2
.debug_macinfo          -         -     -

Where - means there is no version number in the section. Where x means the section did not exist in that version.
