5 Backward compatibility

This version of ASAM OpenSCENARIO is the first release of the second generation of ASAM OpenSCENARIO. Previous releases of ASAM OpenSCENARIO such as ASAM OpenSCENARIO 1.2.0 are based on an XML representation and are not compatible with this version of ASAM OpenSCENARIO.

ASAM plans to continue the evolution of ASAM OpenSCENARIO 1.2.0 to meet market requirements, while next revisions of this version of ASAM OpenSCENARIO will be developed. It is intended to converge the two versions of the standard into a single stream, based on this version of ASAM OpenSCENARIO.

It is expected that converters will be developed to convert scenarios from ASAM OpenSCENARIO 1.2.0 to this version of ASAM OpenSCENARIO.
