How compatible are LSM6DSL and LSM6DS3?

We were looking at using the LSM6DS3 in a new design, but I noticed the LSM6DSL uses half the power.  The two parts look to be pin compatible and probably software compatible (at least for most features).  Is that correct? 

More specifically: is it valid to use the AN4650 Application note to work with the LSM6DSL (at least until there is a similar application note for that part available)?  Is it likely that code written for LSM6DS3 would work if the part were swapped with the LSM6DSL?

 

Any ETA on a usage application note for the LSM6DSL?
