What’s the different between this and 2.39.0. I upgraded from 188.8.131.52 to 2.39.0 in my local development environment and everything seems to be ok. I am still trying to ensure everything works fine before upgrading our production server. Would you recommend I upgrade 184.108.40.206 to 2.38.2 or 2.39.0
This is a maintenance release for the 2.38 version, primarily aimed at fixing bugs, whereas 2.39.0 was a major new release which introduced some significant new features.
The choice is really up to you. With maintenance releases we aim to avoid any breaking changes, so they should require no updates to any external tools you are using, and they generally aim to improve the stability and security of the version. New versions, on the other hand, can introduce changes to the underlying model, so it is particularly important to read the upgrade notes, and carefully test any functionality that you rely on.
I hope that helps to clarify.
P.S. Whatever version you decide on, we encourage you to stay up to date with the latest patches (and hotfixes) for your version, as they come out.
