|Re: [p2-dev] Is p2 3.6 compatible with previous p2 versions at p2 repository level?|
The plan is to *always* be backward compatible. At this point 3.6 can read 3.5 and 3.4 p2 repos as well as legacy update sites.
However forward compatibility of 3.5 and 3.4 with 3.6 repos will only work if the IUs contained in this repo don't make use of advanced new functionalities introduced in 3.6 (e.g. arity on requirement, or complex IExpression in requirements).
The work on serialization of 3.6 content is still to be done: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=298932
