Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Planning a migration from ACS 3.4.x to OpenACS?

I'm all for calling it ACS 3.5 It was a political decision to release it as ACES. At the time ArsDigita had made a policy decision not to do anymore work on 3x.  We got around it by making it the "eduction" release.
I do think it should unpack to a nice usefull portal rather then "your workspace", though proably not an education specific one.  The portal layout with portlets for many of the modules gives people a much more accurate first impression of what ACS can do.
