Yes, you can still run 4 dye collection.  If you create a 4-dye sample
sheet, you will only be presented with 4-dye module files; if you
create a 5-dye sample sheet, only 5-dye modules.

The instrument firmware also remains 2.5 (which has been 5-dye ready
all along).  This means that if you interchangably run with old and
new collection software (for some odd reason), you won't get
complaints and questions about whether to reload firmware.
