Should we upgrade from Bitbucket v4.12.0 to the latest version ?

Hi,

Other than the new features & fixes, I was wondering if we don't migrate from Bitbucket v4.12.0 to the latest version would cause issues in the future ?

Eg. : Not beeing able to migrate to from 4.12 to 6.X version ?

Right now, our server is only used for 10 users and it is working fine. 

Thanks

No.  If you don't upgrade now, don't worry. 

We spend a lot of time here advising people on upgrade routes.  If you leave it a while, you will start to get the advice "do not upgrade from 4 to 6".  But intermediate versions will remain available, and we'll be advising you to use them! 

I've just told a client they need to go from Jira 4.1 to 4.4 then 5.1 then 6.4, then 7.0 and then 7.(5/6/7 depending on testing).  It's surprisingly frequent that people leave upgrades for so long!  (Reminds me, I need to bump my systems up soon...)
