Dear Kevin,

I am always cautious, too, but Flare has the advantage that you can run multiple versions in parallel, so you can always switch back to the old version if required.

I am using Flare 6.0 now for about a week and I did a very thorough testing involving builds of targets, project imports, communication with Source Control (Team Foundation Server) and so far I could not find any problem or incompatibility.

* Communication with Source Control has been improved, especially concerning moving files.
* PDF generator has been greatly improved.
* The new icon design is nice, but not really relevant.
* The batch build targets sound ideal for our automated build process, but I didn't used them so far.

Best regards, Christine
