I anticipate ss5 will be mostly "ss4, but with breaking changes we agreed not to include earlier"


At the moment there's very little in SS5 branches. There's not really any point in an alpha until we have a better idea of what SS5 is going to look like.


the focus now surely needs to be on resolving version 4 pain points before doing any major changes for version 5


I'm going to suggest that the probability of an alpha is low :)
