Someone of you or the anonymous (really why anonymous?) replier to my ticket 5190 at 27 Feb 2017 must be wrong. The reply that I got was:Actually, no.
There is no direct upgrade path from 4.0 to 5.0, instead you'll need to upgrade from 4.0 -> 4.1 and then 4.1 -> 5.0. Both processes run straight from the ACP though, so it is quite easy but adds a bit more burden as if you would upgrade 4.0 -> 5.0 in one step.
Even if I replied to him that currently the only that I need is upgrade to 4.1 as none of the plugins that I use are compatible with 5.0, the reply was the same "You must upgrade to 5.0". So where is the option to upgrade to 4.1 as you wrote before?The sale of new Burning Board 4.1 licenses was discontinued by us on December, 15th 2016. With the purchase of a current WoltLab Suite 3.0 license, however, you also get access to Burning Board 4.1.
Edited: When I upgraded my xF license, they didn't asked me to pay for all intermediate versions. And this is the logic. Why to pay for versions that I never downloaded, never used, and never got support for them? Have I downloaded, used, supported for your 4.1 version? No.
Edited 2: The same with IPB. My license expired at January 2015. They didn't asked me to pay for the period Jan 2015-Jan 2017. They ask $95 for 6 months ahead.
