IDEA 5.1 and 6.0 project files

A colleague and I share project files in our source tree.

I'm still running 5.1.2 and he's now running 6.0.1 Is there any way for us to continue sharing project files or will files update from his 6.0.1 side start being incompatible with my 5.1.2 installation.

It's not recommended. IDEA 5.1 will not understand IDEA 6.0 specific configuration options and strip them from the file.

To avoid problems it's recommended to keep project/module files for both 5.x and 6.x IDEA versions and synchronize the options manually when necessary.
