We have been doing some v8 and some v9(from v6 and from v7).
It is very difficult, but yes luckily v8 has been fine. bt v9 migration still seems dark.

Hello Ferdinand,

frankly I think it's way too complex. Moreover stock changed totally in v8 and accounting changed totally in v9. At the end of the day most of your modules would need to be totally re-designed between v7 and v9 so keeping API compatibility is a minor concern in this. Better focus your energy on migrating IMHO.

I would prefer to add v8 API compatibility to  6.1 (or 7).

This would allow to write new modules with the new syntax and rewrite 
and test existing module by module - especially these modules which are 
not affected by design changes in later versions.

Has anyone done something like that or has anyone an idea how complex 
this is?

Most of the code must be almost there as in v8 the API backward 
compatibility is implemented.

Or do I miss something
