hi. it strikes me that an upgrade from v6 to v7 brings substantial dificulties for many. As figuring out whether using OpenERP for our company or not I wonder how often you would have to go trhough such a process with all the attention needed.
is there a standard release cycle?
if 'yes' how often is a new version released?
how long is an 'outdated' version still supported
how long does it 'normally' take to have a new 'stable' version (including all modules being ported)
I guess that sums up to: how long do you have 'peace of mind' once your OpenERP system is running? Or in other words: can one expect periods where you just can use your OpenERP without troubles related to things being in process of change.
It seems to me that the differences between 6 & 7 are quite substantial so maybe the problems with upgrading and porting are more severe then with 'just a usual' new version?
thanks for your input on this
the gap between 6 and 7 was about 2 years, with 6 being supported for some time (3 years?) in to the future. Our experience has been that all our local modules have required re-work to upgrade to v7. For your data, if you have an OpenERP Enterprise contract the data upgrade is included.
