How do you interpret the incompatibility in the incremental releases of Kotlin? Refatoring large projects written in Kotlin can be costly.

What are the steps you follow to convert code?
Are there tools available to automatically convert code?

Hi Felipe,

Could you elaborate which incompatibilities you encountered?

Kotlin releases are backwards-compatible. All APIs that are excluded from this are marked as experimental (they reside in an experimental package), such as coroutines before Kotlin 1.3.

...except for major versions which may introduce breaking changes.
