    Umbraco and the future

    I am planning a reasonably large web application with CMS functionality and see Umbraco been the perfect platform. I have used it to build quite a few websites in the past and from this have also experienced some negative aspects when moving from v3 - v4.

    Will moving from v4 - v5 be simple?

    The application will include custom sections (main concern) and probably won't be packaged as this seems like a complex process even from v4, correct me if I am wrong.

    When version 5 was mentioned at CodeGarden this year it was stated that version 5 will NOT be backward compatible with version 4 and there will not be an automatic upgrade. Version 5 is the MVC version of Umbraco where version 4.x is the web forms version.  But....they are planning to continue to support Umbraco version 4.x, even after v5 :)

    For some recap from a code garden presentation about umbraco 5 vs 4.x visit:

    There are a few powerpoint presentations. Hope that helps in the decision.
