Avid Media Composer - Backwards compatibility question

A quick question about backwards compatibility for Avid Media Composer. If one upgrades to version 8.x, can projects created in earlier versions be opened and accessed? If so, will anything be lost? A colleague is upgrading from v.3 to 8 and needs to know if they can access their old projects in 8.x.

be aware that 5 to 8 won't handle all sequences... 6 and 7 to 8 are better, but the safest way is to assure the sequences and bins are as simple and clean as possible and you may want to upgrade on one systems and keep the original until you've transferred everything over.
