This is a silly question and fair in the future, but would it be possible to import 1.0 caps 'to the best of 2.0's abilities'?

I wouldn't mind importing something thats totally broken and then fixing it -- compared to say, working completely from scratch.

It's not yet certain at this point what will and won't be implemented - and although it might be possible to implement partial .cap import, it might also prove too difficult or time consuming, so I wouldn't count on it as certain. If you look the original post actually states "it's unlikely .caps from 1.0 will be able to be ported in to Construct 2" - but also that we'd also continue to maintain the 1.x branch so old users aren't left totally out in the cold.

Don't do a Microsoft and sacrafise usability and such for backwards compatability.

If someone wants it that much, it is open source, they can feel free to write it, i would rather 2.0 to be a fresh version that isn't burdoned by backwards compatibility, unless it isn't much trouble :)

I agree with this. Legacy support killed MMF2. But I think you guys know that. :P

It'd just import the graphics/animations and resources from an old .cap, which is pretty much as far as it could go without some significant work.

Even that in itself would be pretty good since i doubt that would sacrafice anything for the newer versions operations.

I hope there will be an august or september update! But that seems unlikely, so I hope there is one in october/november/december!
