I am planning to upgrade my forum to XF2 in near future (waiting for stable XF2 and EDGE release). Right now I am running XF 1.5.15 and EDGE 1.5.14.
Assuming the new EDGE and XB for XF2 will be a totally new product, it should require a fresh install rather than an upgrade to current 1.5.XX versions. Therefore, I need to uninstall the current XB and EDGE anyhow to install the new versions for XF2. Here I have 2 questions:
Are my assumptions correct? Or you will have a pathway to upgrade current 1.5.XX to 2.X.XX (like XF)? I am not asking about cost/licensing model, I am just asking from the technical point of view.
If my assumptions are correct, how important it is to upgrade my XB 1.5.14 installation to newly released 1.5.15, considering it should not have a lifespan of more than a month, and I am currently happy with my 1.5.14 version?
Fresh install, 2.0 brand new product line and nothing will be able to be converted over. XF does a simple color palette change when they upgrade the style but that's about it, nothing else will really stay the same, unfortunately. Any edits will need to be redone.
