Compatibility Note

Projects created in version 4 of Etoys (Late 2009 to March 2012) should load without difficulty into Etoys 5. But some projects created in the new version will not be usable in older versions. If you try to load a project created using Etoys 5 into an earlier version of Etoys, a warning message will be presented about possible incompatibilities.
