I upgraded vanrees.org to plone 2.5 yesterday. To be honest, that's almost not newsworthy: it went smoothly.
Behind the scenes, there's a lot of improvements to plone. Much more zope 3 goodness. But that's behind the scenes and the few parts that needed modifying from 2.1.2 were migrated without a hitch.
On the front end, I had to redo some portlets but would have really had to do that for 2.1 already. Moving from the
h5 to the
dd style of portlets. I took the chance to play with DIY plone style, especially using Limi's tutorial for it. So I took the liberty of making the design much simpler.
Anyway, good to get current with plone and especially good to see the migration going so smoothly. I was helped in this by instancemanager's capability to migrate plone which made the testing process a breeze.
