There is workaround for the snapvault issue in 5.0 itself. use the options as below.
[root@ ~]# dfm option set ndmpDataUseAllInterfaces=1
Changed use all available IP addresses for NDMP data transfer to 1.
By default the value of this option is zero or OFF.

The NOW site still just lists 5.0 available for download and the list of known issues is very long. Some of them prevent us from upgrading - for example, execute reports from CLI. I am just so scared to upgrade DFM (4.0.2) in our environment in case something major no longer works correctly.
When is the next scheduled release and what is likely to be fixed and still broken?

So far I've had a pretty good experience with OnCommand Core 5.0. I'm still reasonably new to NetApp to begin with (6+Mths so far). What you could do is for the time being, make a backup of your DFM 4.0.2 database, build a new server with OnCommand 5 on it (on a seperate box of course) and import that database. Then you can run 2 systems concurrently with the same data so you can test. That's how i migrated off our DFM server to OnCommand 5.0.
