That would be a problem with all programs -- unless there is a SAVE mode that is "compatible with version  xxxx" (as, for example, MS Word has). One cannot expect backward compatibility, I think.

Many of my collaborators use old versions of pymol, frequently installed onto their machines when they were bought X years ago, and this essentially makes it so I cannot use pymol 1.6 as I cannot share sessions with them (at least not without getting weird e-mails asking why I have a sudden affinity for the color red).
