Be careful that project files opened in GNS3 v2.1 cannot be open in GNS3 v2.0 anymore.

GNS3 2.0 was a major release of GNS3 which bringed major architectural changes, as all the “application intelligence” has been moved from the client to the GNS3 server. GNS3 was only a desktop application from the first version up to version 0.8.3. With the more recent 1.x versions, GNS3 had the possibility to use remote servers.  In version 2.0, multiple clients could control a GNS3 server at the same time.
