Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to OpenACS 3.x or 4.x by year end?

Posted by Jerry Asher on
There are many issues.

How much do you value the ability to *easily* add new modules to the site that have been created by third parties?  Do you have lots of content that needs the new version 4 permissions?  Do you need the new version 4 templates?  How accepting of risk are you?  Very?  Moderate?  If yes to many of these questions, your way is clear my son.

If no, then you may be happy with Version 3 which as you say, has been tested by time....

By the way, I haven't tried it, but I believe Don says that OACS 4 should support at some point ACS 4 modules.  If so, then there is an adserver for 4.  I have a version of it for ACS 4.0.1 that folks tell me broke for some reason in 4.2.  I dunno.  Furfly probably has a fresher version.
