XAP 10.0 is a major release which includes new features and improvements.
We try to maintain backward compatibility wherever possible. However, in some cases, no backward compatibility is provided.
Issue number is GS-11936. For more information see known issues.
This issue was fixed in service pack 10.0.1. If your deployment requires backwards compatibility between client and server please download this service pack.
As a best practice, when upgrading to XAP 10.0, unzip the latest version of XAP 10.0 and port the necessary changes from your pre-10.0 environment into your new 10.0 environment. It is recommended to use the XAP 10.0 distribution as-is. Please refer to the Upgrade Guide for more details.
