Is this true for all versions?  Now I am slightly confused.  Also from
the discussion and the documentation I get the impression that there
are major differences between 3.0 and 3.1 / 3.2.  My personal
expectation would have been that without a change in the major version
number there would be no such dramatic changes - or at least an
automated migration / conversion of *.vol files.

Kind regards
