As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

We are embarking on a migration from WebFocus 5.3 on AIX to 7.6 on Windows, and I wondered if I could get some advice on what folks thought was the best point release of Developer Studio 7.6.

By best I mean the most stable and reliable.

TIA,


Regards,
Dave

imho. 768, always go with the most current, unless you know of some specific reason not to.
for example, i need launch pages that work in firefox 3, and so i need the latest and greatest.

Susannah,

That's not my mantra, I don't believe in working on the 'bleeding edge', but prefer using a stable version with known behavior. Smiler

We aren't looking for new features, so much, and will be doing a good deal of Maintain.

So, which 7.6 release is the least problematic ?

7.6.8 is a maintenance release fairly far down the chain of 7.6 releases so it is not bleeding edge. New features are only in the odd-numbered maintenance releases.

I would trust Susannah.
