So will it maintain the IPv4 address format (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)

There are sites already up by now testing your IPv6 (http://test-ipv6.com/) ability and I was told I will only be able to connect to IPv4 compatible machines. (If my ISP hasn't transitioned to the latter).

But I was just wondering if they left a room for backward compatibility because if I understood better the only reason why they had to come up with IPv6 is because IPv4 could only support a small amount of IP address list.

So why change the whole thing ? I hope it's backward compatible whatever implementation they used.

The IPv6 spec clearly explains about IPv4 backward compatibility issues and interconnection methods.
