There have been a number of config changes between versions 5 and 6. You will 
have to account for those in your upgrade.

Since this software is a gatekeeper to your applications, it is wise to run the 
most recent version.

Thanks for your reply.

And what about backward compatibility ?

Of course there is a link between OS distributions, Java versions, CAS and 
building tools and if I can avoid using totally out of phase Java versions, I 
would be more than happy !

But is it safe to replace an old CAS version by a more recent one (after having 
modified the new templates and configuration files of course) ?

Yes its better to install latest stable version, you can find the latest 
releases here , as of now V6.1.6 would 
be good for you.
just avoid  -RC versions.

Is it a good thing to use the latest version available, maybe to be more 
“futureproof”, or should I install the same.
By the way, how can I know which version is the latest stable ?
