Thanks for getting in touch. I'm afraid that I don't agree with your
interpretation of that announcement, and its applicability now, but
despite that I do acknowledge it may be useful to provide a confirmation.
Thus, you can take this as confirmation that there is no current plan to
support 5.0 to 7.0 upgrades, unless we release by February 2012. As we
are due to freeze in June 2012, I don't believe that this will occur.
