I am also very interested in getting more information on how to best transfer Arnold 1-4 Shader Networks s to Arnold 5.

I would be very thankful if anyone could recommend detailed documentations, tutorials on how to preserve the overall aesthetics and how to convert/replace/rebuild deprecated or incompatible nodes in the best possible way?

There is a brief summary on some key points somewhere on arnoldpedia, but it's really more of a general note and somehow quite hidden.
