It takes longer because they were using version 3. Instead of updating their software to version 4 in their planned site evolution, they decided to move directly to version 5. That's no longer just modding the existing software but is dumping their front end and moving to new code that regulates entitlements.
Their ver3 code was already innovative as sites go because it split new material into locally served material and older chapters into mangadex @ home servers which are run by users donating their bandwidth. That is how e-hentai does it. In fact. MangaDex copied the e-hentai software and modded it for manga serving.
e-hentai has entitlement regulation whereas the old ver3 basically had almost none. In many ways, they could just copy e-hentai and change the front end on how indexes are displayed, and it would work. But that isn't ver5 because ver5 is also supposed to be the MangaDex experience.
