A module or a theme built for the version 2.5.1 will be fully compatible for the upcoming version 3?

Eduardo, no, it will not. However, there will be several good theme and module examples, plus some tutorials are planned.

Both will require some work to be made compatible, with a module likely being easier. I plan to have some guides available post release.

There are changes to the way JS and CSS files are loaded that will effect both modules and themes.

Our core UI will be based on Bootstrap v3 so much of the CSS in older themes will no longer be necessary (styling of forms, tables, and many other elements), you will just need to build a custom copy of Bootstrap to match your theme/color scheme. There are variety of ways to do this which I will touch on later.

There are also a variety of changes which can optionally be undertaken such as new filtering standards, etc.

I cannot speak for the Team but my personal answer is "not if I can help it". Apart from some of the directory structure, some file names and some function names, there is no similarity with Burzi's code.
3 is so different it could even have it's own license. Just to recap some of the major differences;
We are no longer using or providing backward compatibility with mysql (it actually reaches end-of-life soon) and are using the PDO wrapper, mysqli.
UTF-8 and HTML 5 are used throughout as well as native support for left-to-right as well as right-to-left languages.
A complete new data sanitization and validation system is implemented (HTML Purifier).
User registration, log-in validation etc is handle by a new dedicated API.
Administration and user themes are completely seperate and independent in addition to setting a different 'default' theme for anonymous users.

I wish I could list everything but it would take so long!

Converting a 2.4 or 2.5 module so it actually works, is fairly straight forward and we'll have tutorials available to help guide people. That in itself sounds fairly daunting but it should not take more than a few minutes per file depending on what the file has in it, even for a novice PHP enthusiast..

Eduardo,

No. v2.5x could have removed it but we decided to wait for v3.0.

I hope that the nuke word will be eliminated completely.
It would be appropriate to christen it with a new fantasy name.
