Upgrade questions

Please note that I am not an IT person. I am a communications person that runs my company’s blog.

My company runs a number of blogs using blogengine.net version 1.5.07. You can see an example here http://www.berrynetwork.com/Blogs/Marketing_Insights/ I am interested in upgrading to the latest version – 1.6, as it will allow the blog authors to comment on comments made by blog readers. This brings up two questions:

1. Other than being able to comment on a comment, what other advantages are their to upgrading from 1.5.07 to 1.6? Is it worth the trouble?

2. How much time /how many hours, would an upgrade take? I ask this because my IT folks are telling me it would take an excessive amount of time. Our blogs were originally developed by a third party agency and none of out IT staff has experience with blogengine.net. I think they are just trying to avoid the issue.

Thanks in advance for the help.
