  • Compatibility of BC3.1.X (12204) and 3.2.X (13046)

    I would like to upgrade to V3.2 but some problems with it I've found in trialling mean I want the option to return to V3.1.

    Can I be reasonably sure such a return is painless, esp. with respect to stored settings?

    I will be upgrading workstations' main installations and subsequently the portable installations I have (to keep settings separate) placed in project folder trees.

    Thanks.

    Hello Chris,

    99% of the time the return should be painless. Just in case, before you update you can back up your current version's settings using the Tools menu -> Export Settings, export everything, and name it with the version number.

      A 1 in 100 failure rate is the kind of thing that worries me. Perhaps you could tell me the nature of the failures you are aware of? Thanks.

        I'm not aware of any actually, and the 99 number is just one I threw out there. I just can't guarantee that all future updates can be downgraded to any past versions without issue.

          Good news - thanks.

          Any Devs here aware of downgrade problems?

            No, but it's not something we actively support or test. We try to not make significant changes to settings within a major release, and BC does maintain settings it doesn't understand. Personally I end up running everything from 3.0.0 up through the development releases, and I haven't seen any problems.

            The only thing I can think of that's questionable is the sync changes we've already discussed, and, other than the visual glitch on the sync type, I'm pretty sure that's working correctly in 3.2.3.

              Good to hear, inc. "BC does maintain settings it doesn't understand" so thanks, I'll migrate.
