We are at the early stages of developing a new Kibana application, but we have noticed that there is much work going on towards Kibana 5, which will apparently be incompatible with Kibana 4.4 in several ways with respect to plugins. For example, the
generator-kibana-plugin helper targets the upcoming release, not the currently stable one.
So, is there any prediction on the release date of the new version?
If it is close enough, maybe one should invest in exploring the new version instead of the current one.
