Migration from 5.5 to 6.0

We've just upgrated to BizTalk 2013 R2.

I see now that I need to migrate to 6.0 beta if I want to deploy on R2.

I have a lot of btdproj files from 5.5 - can these be migrated easily to 6.0? Any experience?

If it poses too many problems migrating - I might downgrade to BizTalk 2013 again, since we're running close to first production deadline.

Unless you've done really custom things, such as overriding and re-implementing core BTDF targets, you might not have to change anything. If you use IIS deployment, you'll have to redo that configuration because the feature was completely rewritten. Give it a try. Chances are it will be straightforward.

Hi Tom.
Thank you for the answer.
I'll give it a try :-)
When do you expect to release 6.0 from beta?
I'll be happy to do some testing in 2015 if it's not too late.

No idea, sorry. I can only work on it late at night, and I've had too much going on recently. There have been few issues with the beta so far.
