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? Mar 7, 2012 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.
