Backward-compatible, yes. Upward-compatible, no.
Therefore...no sharing. Technically ;-) (There are always workarounds...but
it will depend on exactly what you want to share, etc.)

I don't remember X3, not really. The biggest change between the two versions
is that X5 uses a different kind of project file (for RHH, anyway). Maybe
someone else remembers more?
