We STRONGLY RECOMMEND upgrading to the latest v6!


* ALL versions prior to the current v6 have known security vulnerabilities, making them vulnerable to attack by an infected machine on your local network.


* LimeTech has been seriously considering for some time moving ALL older versions to End-Of-Life, all versions prior to v6.


* Maintenance and support is becoming harder and scarcer as time goes by.  There are fewer and fewer people familiar with your version able or willing to help.


* Numerous bugs have been fixed.  You may be running without issue now, but something can still go wrong, or you may try something different, and run into an issue long fixed in newer versions.


* You're missing out on a lot of new features, and perhaps better performance too.


* One very important improvement is Notifications, makes it a better NAS!  The system will inform you immediately of problems.


* After upgrading, you will still be able to run all of your favorite applications, and they may even run better, because in v6 there are multiple ways to run them.
