I don't recommend waiting on Propellerhead making the files backward compatible...
Wrt the upgrade... upgrading from Adapted is $329 vs $129 from Reason 6/6.5...
What all of this means in a nutshell is that for your own projects, you can use Reason 7, and for collaboration projects, use Reason 6.5.
As for the licensing, if you have Reason 7 installed to your key, Propellerhead has stated in another post that the R7 license will authorize R6/6.5, so you should be able to run both with just Reason 7 installed to the key.... just install each version to its' own folder.
Awesome!! Thank you reasoner 498 for that speedy response & confidence booster ...that last paragragh said it all!! I will purchasing tonight!!
