VB5 worth it

Should I upgrade to VB5 yet or should I wait like 5 months?

IMO I would wait, especially if you have alot of mods on your site, or use the CMS.

Wait, and take your time to make an informed decision.

Setup a test site beforehand no matter if you're antsy now and decide to "just do it" or wait 5-6 months the points being;

- A test site i.e. yoururl.com/testvb/ is allowed per the license agreement, it must be .htaccess protected so it's highly advised to use this to your advantage.
- Testing on a cloned database typically shows you the same errors encountered during a live site upgrade.

Use the test site after it's upgraded to 5.x format to tweak your style, modifications etc and on that note - not all modifications will carry over to 5.x or styles for that matter so be sure to do a test site and prepare yourself and your site in advance .

Take a look at the number of mods available for each platform.

VB 5 has just 41.
VB 4 has 1881.

That is very telling to me. The numbers don't lie.

Started not to answer this but ....

I use VB 4. I love it.
The reason I have not upgraded to VB 5 is I just don't think I would gain that much. Having said that I'm sure there are those that have upgraded and would argue my point.

I will go out on a limb and say that it is my belief from the posts both here and on other vb related sites, VB 4 is more stable (at this time).

Just ask yourself what problem(s) that you currently have that vB5 solves for you. If they are important things, do it.

I'd wait at the very least, 5 years before deciding to install vB5. It took me about three years until I installed vB4, and even when vB4 was released, it was far better than vB5 is now.

You should wait like 5 years. They might get out of alpha by then.
