Problems with inkscape 0.44

I have installed a new Inkscape version 0.44 yesterday and played a bit with it. While all seems to work fine for new SVG files I encountered some problems with existing SVG after opening them in new Inkscape. They don't appear properly as it seems some colors are missing as if the new Inkscape parses SVG a bit differently than the old one making SVG files from old inkscape incompatible with files from the new one.

Has anyone had similar problems and if yes, have you found out what's the catch?

Thanks

It has to do with the way

It has to do with the way Inkscape uses CSS in the SVG. It's the same issue you'll see if you make an SVG with Inkscape then try to view it with svgdisplay or another app.

Thanks kode. I helped myself

Thanks kode. I helped myself with sodipodi to export my SVG file from it and then view it back in inkscape. Oddly enough, that worked.

Shouldn't it be standardized though? SVG files created by inkscape should work in any other editors and vice versa and especially when the other editor is the earlier version of inkscape as is the case here.
