I must admit that there are some "non-compatible" changes in the config, 
AND the Api (in particular ejb syntax).
But from my point of view, this comes because Caucho provide tools 
really efficients before they are completely defined by the community. 
There is good and bad in everything.

I never found difficult to upgrade, except that it costs... for all the 
changes we have to make, and the time to find the new syntax.
This process have been difficult for me because it was at a time where 
the docs were in unstable state. For instance there was a clickable 
index of config tags in 3.0 documentation, that disappeared for months 
(no more clickable).

Now it's back, and it seems that the new 3.2 doc is really good.
