What's the general approach with armys when a new codex coes out?

Is it still OK to field an army uder the old codex, or is it new codex only?

Should old armies untils be re-pointed to fit the new codex?

I'm applying this to Ork mainly 'cos I'm not too sure what to do about my Ork army.

OK, thanks for the info.

With regards to figures, the Boyz are similar between the two Codexs so I'm not going to have to change them. What about the warbikes? Can I use the old 'plain' warbikes in an official army, or do they need to be the new style only?, or can I mix and match, as long as I pay the new costs?
I've got the new codex, and the Spearhead box set. I'm just a bit slow with the painting and I still haven't finished the battleforce from the previous codex. What I didn't want to do would be to waste effort finishing it, if I then couldn't use the figures.
Thanks for the answers.
December 2006 or there abouts. It was a Christmas present for my son. I bought the nid's one at the same time. I haven't completed either of them yet (said I was slow)...
