File versions

To protect against loss of fidelity when opening files in an older version of Horizon EDA than they were created with, version 1.3.0 introduces the concept of file versions.

Rather than storing the application version in design files and pool items, each file type has its own version number that’ll get incremented if the file format changes in a way that’s incompatible with older versions. That way, warnings about upgrading files are only show if needed. Forward compatibility, as in being able to open files that were crated in an earlier version, is always given.
