Probably 5.5.10 is the last version available when you send the original
PRF. Please always upgrade to the latest version available at that moment
(which is 5.6 at this moment)

> 2) Does the upgraded version works the same like the old version. i.e

There have been a lot of changes, how complex the upgrade would be depends
on what you use. The easiest solution is to just download it, build it and
then build your app and see what happens.

> 3) If I have problems with the upgraded version, will you provide
> support?

The mailing lists are only best effort, if you need guaranteed support
contact one of the commercial companies delivering support. See

the commercial support companies.
