Could some one please

  • summarize the differences between V5 and V6
  • tell us where to find documentation - I could not find any although I understand this is in EIP 627
  • is it "production ready" ?
  • say whether the Go implementation in Geth is forward compatible: do I need to rewrite anything that I have done on top of Geth using V5

Many Thanks

whisper v6 is still work in progress, it's not compatible with v5 and the EIP 627 is the only spec right now. Documentation will be updated when v6 is ready

[V6 improves] parity compatibility and scalability
