On my development box, I have Sitefinity 3.7. Once I create the core site, I upload it to my production server and then add the pages, content, photos, and whatnot to the site. I like some of the news features outlined in 4.0. My concerns are:
1) If I wanted to do all my future development with Sitefinity 4.0, do I simply over install what I have (version 3.7) and can I still go through setting up the basic stuff (like the name of the project and the SQL database stuff) on my machine and then push it onto the server for the further site development?
2) If I have any existing websites in Sitefinity 3.7, if I installed 4.0 over the top of it will it keep my sites running or will all the sites have to be redone in 4.0?
3) Although we are fairly close to the full launch date, if I acquired the RC version, is it reliable enough for full production or should I wait until the full version comes out? I do not mind (while developing the site) it runs in community version and then acquire the license. If I also develop the site in 3.7 and then when the full 4.0 is released, can I simply install over the top or will I have to redo the site?
