So now that ArcGIS Pro 2.0 is out be careful if you are using older
versions. Projects and other files created with ArcGIS Pro 2.0 may not be
compatible with earlier versions. This might include: projects and  project
templates, as well as, layer, map, and layout files. 


Since ArcGIS Pro 2.0 is considered a major release, it and the files it
creates are forward compatible only. This means you can open files created
in previous versions of ArcGIS Pro but older versions will not be able to
open files created with the new version. It is not possible to directly back
save a copy of an ArcGIS Pro 2.0 project which can be opened with any 1.x
version of ArcGIS Pro. However you can create a project package which
contains both 2.0 and 1.x versions of the project, so it can be opened in
any version.
