I have been here before:

As I understand it, there are database changes between 1.5.2 and the 
next version. For this reason, once you have upgraded, then you are 
stuck. Not a word many here will like, but it's a word people will use.

So far when releases have happened, it's been a devblog post with words 
like "quicker" "more secure" "more features" and there might be a link 
to a changelog.
Please can we have much more info about the next version including 
warnings about the lack of reverse compatibility ? If someone starts 
flipping out at the admin screens (sorry, 'when') all we can say is 
words along the lines of "It'll grow on you". If this product is 
considered to be significantly different to the current one - regardless 
of whether it is better or not in some respects - then surely there is a 
duty to tell users in detail about what the consequences are. It's not 
enough to say "just like wordpress.com" (because it will not be).

I'm absolutely certain this is going to fall on deaf ears, and the least 
time I posted it was pretty much ignored too.
