Fernando, you don't mention your platform but we are pretty happy with 7.6.5 on AIX. We'd originally gone production with 7.6.2. We have no plans to upgrade to 7.6.7 at this time.

7.6.1 is the most stable release I've seen of WebFocus...but I would trust Jenny's recomendation. We plan to upgrade sometime next year to something if some things we are waiting on are fixed.

I found a number of issues with 7.6.1. That's why we waited until 7.6.2 to go production. I am very happy with 7.6.5.

We have just finished the upgrade from 7.1.7 to 7.6.5
Not everything works perfect, but the system is stable.
We maybe upgrade to 7.6.7 but first do this on test!

What types of probelms have you run across with 7.6.5? We need to upgrade in the near future so I need to start researching which is the most stable version. We are currently running 7.1.4.

Personally, I would go with their latest 7.6.7 - we're on 7.6.6 and it seems quite stable. We had some issues (I can't recall what they are now) with 7.6.2.

5.3 isn't bad if you don't mind not being able to do any of the new stuff and not having an HTML editor.
