I have heard that they are working on an upgrade module from CE5 to CE6 though there are no specifics yet.
Either way it is possible to do a manual upgrade. It is NOT easy, and does take a huge amount of work, but it is possible. There are literally thousands of self hosted CE5 installs running, and having zero path to upgrade to CE6 would be the death of the company (LOL I exagerate)
I am currently running CE5, but will upgrade to CE6 the moment it becomes available. Not sure there is a public alpha yet even though I know behind the scenes they have been working on it.
Is there by any chance an ETA on kaltura with rtcamp?
I am finally in position to be able to do some real testing if so. I have buddypress setup on a multi-server, multi-db setup as well as my entire kaltura server cluster. While kaltura is rock solid, I do have to say that so far I am not at all impressed with the number of bugs still present in buddyPress 1.7. I wish they followed the same path that WordPress does with trunk, where it is still usable on a daily basis. Right now it’s ‘somewhat’ stable, but I’m not sure I trust it in a public environment yet. Problem is downgrading buddyPress means I am missing out on so many features.
In the end, I just need a very robust media platform to tie together WordPress and Kaltura. I hope it’s buddyPress, but if not, I wont be heart broken.
