@firesphere that's good to hear
The primary pain point in upgrading from 3 to 4 was the namespacing. This should not be a problem again on a future upgrade
I'm hoping the upgrade between ss4 to ss5 will be more straight forward than from ss3 to ss4. Strict typing should make the upgrade from ss5 to ss6 more straight forward I'd imaging. Forcing project code to meet an expected standard should make it more reliable through an upgrade, surely.
But we won't do that without releasing an upgrade tool to assist
It is possible that we might move to strict typing in SS5 - mayyyybe. That might be a little annoying.
Magento 1.x to 2.x was a significant jump.
