- We do not feel it is quite ready, yet
We are closely following the mailing list and do regular cross version tests. Our own own perception is that the release has been pushed early by the OFBiz community and does not provide the stability for a proper production use
- There is no technical benefit
The OFBiz community has been focusing on core changes that change fundamental aspects of the system (such as the introduction of a new build-tool or the change of java package names, which effects all classes), but do not necessarily provide a ‘better’ functionality for its users.
- Migration is difficult
The recent core changes require an entire rewrite of all components provided with the system. As a result all our current users would be forced to migrate their own custom components in order to be compatible with the new release. This, btw, is also the case for all OFBiz users in general, who have worked with previous releases of the software.
Unfortunately, this migration effort can be quite costly and time-consuming. We feel that at the current state our effort is therefore better spent on other aspects of our system.
