Currently, with Arno and Angus, we selected to use mostly String (reverting 
back from the first work we've done).

Only string.

Projects cannot be opened with previous version and unfortunately they have 
not changed the extension. But a backup copy of an old project is created 
when you load it.

The language itself is largely compatible with previous versions. I have 
ported a mid-size real D2007 application using Midware and ICS with almost 
no change !
