Warning! If autosave is not turned off, Scribus will save the file at
however many minutes autosave is set to. Therefore, if you open the
document from the older version in the newer version of Scribus, do a
"save as" immediately.

A safer practice would be to make a copy under a new name using the
file browser for your operating system before you even launch Scribus.
Then you can be sure your original file is untouched and can always be
opened by the earlier version of Scribus.
