Yes, we are definitely going to change Nolics with OpenAccess ORM. We will migrate all APIs and will introduce a new set as well with Sitefinity 4.0. All existing functionality will be kept, but we will use OpenAccess. We also expect a greater performance with the new ORM. Again, this change is going to happen in Sitefinity 4.0.
