There will come a time when a combination of Anki version/operating system/add-ons will no longer work or suits your needs. This will probably not be a problem for this version in the next year or the year afterwards.
i have vowed many many many times, alongside many users,
that the anki version keeps moving forward, but the addon developers are not.
that’s why others and me would like some versons are long term support as ubuntu, that developers could have stay on that LTS version instead of an arm race like android developers and google<-- on file handling.
even recently, ankidroid was forced by google to migrate the storage.
reply to someone above (who is really discussing anki)
it enforce v3,
upgrading anki need careful decision before hand.
