Reading the release notes of LC 9 there is a major difference between 8 and
9. That is the platform backward compatibility. I know, that Windows XP is
out of date and not any more patched by MS, but I still have quite a number
of customers, running offline computers with XP. Good to read the release
notes carefully.

Hi Tiemo,

 From LiveCode 9 onwards, we will use a simplified numbering scheme:

- If we add anything new or make any backward-incompatible change: 
increment first number, reset second number to 0

- If we fix bugs in a backwards-compatible way: keep first number, increment
second number

I explained this in the blog post that I wrote about the LiveCode 9 DP 1
release: https://livecode.com/whats-new-in-livecode-9-dp-1/

The new features in LiveCode 9 will include Infinite LiveCode capability,
with _at least_ the ability to integrate LCB code directly with Java
libraries (such as Android APIs).
