ADFS : Metadata on ADFS 4.0

This is on Server 2016.

I've had a number of questions around compatibility e.g. can ADFS 3.0 federate with ADFS 4.0?

The servers are very different e.g. 2016 has containers, full OpenID Connect / OAuth support etc.  but the SAML level on both is still 2.0 so there should be no issues.

As an exercise, I checked the ADFS metadata on both.

Other than the expected differences e.g. federation service name, certificates, ID's etc. there is no difference which bears out the fact that they are compatible.
