Backwards compatible?


Is 3.0 backwards compatible with 2.0 so that in a team of devs with mixed versions there won't be any issues due to changed scripting etc?


  • Thanks for your post. There's nothing in place that stops V3 functioning alongside V2, however there may be some issues, in that we changed some of the defaults with V3 such as we no longer ignore Fill Factor.

    It's therefore recommended not to run the 2 in parallel as we can't possibly know how everyone has set up their DB's, but in theory there's nothing stopping you from doing it providing you're careful.
