I currently run an ecommerce store using Magento CE version There have been many releases that each have had a number of fixes and new issues since then. I'm in the process of planning an upgrade and will be rolling out 5-6 new sites that will each be running on their own domain names, but will be using the same codebase and back-end as my main site. I'd like to know what version the community recommends upgrading my main site to prior to this roll-out? Should I go all the way to or should I stop somewhere before that?

Yes you should always upgrade to the latest stable version for security, features, and performance.

To make this question useful in future, you're basically saying "the latest stable version is the best" - is that right? – paulmorriss Mar 7 '12 at 10:05
Well simply writing "the latest stable version is the best" is a bit brief. I explained the top three reasons people should upgrade. Security, features, and performance. – Anagio Mar 7 '12 at 10:21
