Hi Wesley,

I hope you dont mind, Ive replied to the list as well as I think a few
people might want to know this answer.

1.2 will not use a new format, probably some new tags, but the rest will
be the same.

Between 1.2 and 1.3, there will be some more changes we expect that will
require a new format and new load/save code.

There will be a loader for old docs. There may not be a method to save
into the old format.

Don't worry, any changes like this are NOT going to mean all your old
docs will be useless going forward.

I have to say this stuff is quite undecided in some ways. We just know
to be able to bring some large new features we need a new format (and
will also have a proper DTD etc).
