Can RTC Clients of CLM v6.0.0 connect without issues to CLM v6.0.4 -or- does it need to be upgraded too?
Trying to avoid any upgrade on the clients.

In general there is an aim to provide N-1 compatibility. So a client of version N-1 is compatible to a server version N if not stated otherwise. N meaning 4, 5 or 6 the major version.

The older clients will not have any of the newer capabilities.

This is for all the clients as far as I can tell. JBE, Clients.

Note: performance might be affected in the server keeping the compatibility, so it is suggested to upgrade the clients to the server version as fast as possible.

Hi Eric,

I'm looking at something similar for V5 - V6.0.2 and the client is compatible .. but you will not be able to use any of the new features documented in New and Noteworthy for 6.0.1-V6.0.4 (I don't think? - but maybe someone else from IBM can comment)

Makes sense Matt. Thanks
