Is ORD 2020 R3 compatible with 2020 R1/R2?
Or has there been a design schema change which would require updating all older projects and resources?
I would like to take advantage of the new bug fixes, added tools and other upgrades, but I do not want to update if my older data will no longer function. I have been using the workspace files from my DOT (early preview that they are) and I do not want to update the software if I will no longer be able to use those files. If R3 IS backward compatible, I look forward to giving it a test drive.
Asking this same question. Our current release is on 10.08 2020 R2, and the new release is 10.09 2020 R3? Going with the change in versions we would expect a schema change to have happened. I contacted our Bentley Rep for confirmation before we installed it. I will let you know what he says if you dont get a reply from here. Thanks!Aaron McCownKYTC CAD Support
Yes, there is a schema change from 10.08 to 10.09. The tool to use to take the file back to an older schema is File>Downgrade Civil Model.
Kevin,I was thinking we were told that there would only be one schema change per year to help with versions and updating users. Is this still what is being strived for or are we back to schema changes with different updates. We were not expecting another schema change until 2021 R1. Any and all information is appreciated.

You are right... the goal is to have as few as possible (and have fewer each year). The hope is that the benefit of the new features outweigh the cost of navigating the schemas.
Thank you for your reply. Always a pleasure speaking to you.
