iBooks Author compatibility 2.2 / 2.4?

I'm going to be doing a workshop in a lab that has iBA 2.2. I'm currently running iBA 2.4 on my machines. Anyone know if there are compatibility problems between the two versions?

I read this one and loved it. Now I want Marc to read it to me!
 
Another release to report this week: The audiobook of The Other Oregon just came out — read by top narrator and actor Marc Vietor. Love this guy's work. He nails it. 

‪#‎Audiobook‬ also available on Audible and iTunes.

+Frank Lowney thanks for the kind words. I've been asked to teach at U of Alaska this summer to work with pre-service teachers designing an Alaskan Study text with focus on Native Alaskan culture. Should be fun!

There is a powerful new exhibit at the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center Museum in Old Town Portland Ore. (121 NW 2nd Ave Portland, OR 97209)
Historic images shot in 1942 by Dorothea Lange and others juxtaposed with contemporary images of the same Japanese Americans incarcerated in WWII

It's back to school time - here's how my method class teaches how to teach.
Magicians rely on secrecy. Here's how teachers do the opposite - draw attention to how thing are done and make thinking made visible.
