Why do RunConfigurations disappear b/w releases?

So when I swap b/w IntellIJ 7.0.3 and 8.0.1 I notice that my project will lose all access to it's RunConfigurations.

Specifically I can have a project in 8.0.1 that shows RunConfigurations and load that in 7.0.3. Providing I add the Path Variable
MAVEN_REPOSITORY because it's necessary or else the project won't load in 7.0.3 but after that it simply will not sure any of the
RunConfigurations that I defined in the project.

Then if I return to my project in 8.0.1 it has completely lost the RunConfigurations.

Put me down as somebody who considers that a major PITA

Hello Robert,

do you loose your configurations when you've migrated your project from 7.x
to 8.x? Seems that youve done the opposite: from 8.x to 7.x. Do you suppose
backward compatibility?

Thank you

My expectations were that if I revert back to 7 that my project/iws files won't be impacted. It seems they are.

Even better, it requires forward compatability. IJ 7 must know about IJ 8 format.
