Excellent. Welcome aboard!

I don't any datapoints for that. We do try to make Jifty
platform-agnostic as much as we can.

Try it out and let us know! If you run into any problems, please send
them to the list.

I personally still use 5.8.8, because I'm weak and if I get a chance to
play with the new toys I'll use them everywhere, much to my boss'

In any case, I'm pretty sure that yes, it does run under 5.10.

No. We do have a REST interface though!

I could assist you in writing a SOAP plugin if you wish. :)
