After many, many years I have my site just as I want it and I have loads of add-ons. To me 4.0 upgrade is just another job I will have to do which really doesn't need to be done. It will cost me time and money and deflect my time and money from using my site to make money. At the moment I cannot see the benefit. I will put it off as long as I can without risking my sites security or functionality.
Good points, I guess we are looking at the engine and I'm sure it is very powerful, the skinners will no doubt bring the beats to life and perhaps I shoudl reserve judgement until then. I think I will. :-)
I'm sure it has lot's of whizz bang features, but on first look and feel I don't like it overall. There are parts that I think looks good, but overall thumbs down. It could be "change" and could grow on me. I need to see ip content and nexus and won't be upgrading until properly road tested by users and when all of the hooks and apps I have installed are upgraded. I'm looking at 12 months earliest. Glad it's here now though, so that it can develop further.
I think it's being to clever for it's own good. Less is more sometimes, a list of upcoming events in an easy to read layout is what I'm after. Take a look at a real calendar (look at the functionality not the design).
