X9 Beta file formats now fixed or could still change?

Recommended Posts

Has there been a statement about whether the file formats for X9 beta are now fixed?

 

I see some posts about people using X9 for real work so not sure what the situation is as many betas allow for breaking changes and I could test it more for bugs making real updates rather than just experimenting.

while some are using X9 for real - the caveat is that it is not official and it could change

 

even after the official release CA can issue updates

very rare that they would "break" something - but ....

 

if you are concerned about running for "real" then its probably best not to

The file format itself won't change. Once saved in X9 it can't be opened by earlier versions.

If there are any changes between now and the final release, anything you are working on in the X9 Beta would still work.  If CA has to change the Plan file format, they automatically update an existing Plan to the new format when opened and subsequently saved in the latest version.

Thanks all.

 

It's good that any potential file format changes would be incremental so no loss of existing work done in v9.
