 +===== File Format Version =====
 +
 +Determine whether any changes have been made to the .rg file format. ​ If so, decide the extent of those changes and what level of file format version update is required. ​ Update the file format version as appropriate. ​ See comments on FILE_FORMAT_VERSION_POINT in RosegardenDocument.cpp.

 +Changing the point version has no effect on anything as it is ignored. ​ Changing the minor version will cause an "​incompatibilities"​ warning on load, but the file will be loaded. ​ Use this when data might be lost when opening a file with an older version of rg (e.g. new fields have been added). ​ Changing the major version will cause older versions of rg to refuse to load the file.  Obviously, we should avoid this at all costs. ​ The chances are good that we will never have to do this.
