I've read that there were a couple issues after 5.2.1.4. I'm currently on 5.0.8.2.
What's a relatively safe version right now? As I don't want to fall too far behind on updates.

5.2.6.5. The new update also provides for an option to only update when there is a stable or critical update available.

So I'm seeing a 5.2.6.1, I'm assuming 5.2.6.5 is just a set of critical updates for 5.2.6.1?
Or is there an installable available for the .5 point release?

.5 is missing from the forum database because the bot that we used to grab the update from the BI website had to be modified when he setup a dual path for the updates. What option does the software give you when you try to update?

update to 6.1 and it will likely then let you go to 6.5
Was just able to get back to this today.
Updated to 6.1, it was weird, because even though the prompt was to update to 6.1, it updated to 6.5.

The latest critical now shows up as 5.2.7.something though.

The reason you got 5.2.6.5 is because the update file was changed (but the update notification on the old system wasn't updated to show the new version number).

5.2.7.12 is not what I would call "highly stable", but I guess Ken has to draw the line somewhere. Some people still get crashes with it. Even I still get crashes if I open a clip and I get unlucky.
