I'm investigating an upgrade from QV 11.2 to QV 12, but my organization has disparate groups administrating different server versions. Not everyone will be upgrading simultaneously.
I'd like to understand if a document reloaded in version 12, will be able to be opened in version 11. Obviously, any new functionality would be unavailable, but otherwise should the document open and function as designed?
Alternatively, will documents reloaded using v11 be able to work as designed in v12?
Are there any know issues with the IE plug-in from one version accessing the other?
would you say that those visible differences include real deal-breakers or would you classify them as just cosmetic "improvements" (like those caused by the fact that 12.xx now offers a 100% feature complete AJAX client)
Mostly cosmetic, but as Oliver mentioned, there are some differences. The biggest issue we encountered was applications with on open macros would hang the browser when accessing from the server using the IE Plugin.
We also saw charts with text on the axis not appearing or showing in reversed order.
It depends on your setup and which version of the server, desktop, and IE Plugin you have installed.
