Thank you

Might be.

There's no real way to tell you without looking at all your code and comparing it with the API docs. A plugin that works for v5 might work for v6, but it will only work if you are using APIs and structures that have not changed significantly between the two versions.

The simple way to find out ( really can't be bothered to read the docs in that much detail when this option is available) - install it in a dev/test install of v6 and test it.
