Great advice guys. I know it was a loaded question. I appreciate your feedback. Although I’m probably not as much of an asterisk guru as you guys, I tend to agree with your approach.
Thanks a lot!!

That is a loaded question, in that no two environments are likely to
be the same. Some bugs are major issues for < 1% of the install base
and take time to get merged into the code base. You should read
through the open issues for the 1.8 branch and see if there are any
show stoppers for your environment. If not, try it in the lab and
validate that it works for you.
Check out https://issues.asterisk.org
For my environment specifically, this issue is currently preventing me
from migrating from 1.6.2:
– 18818 [patch] Crashing when using local channels and realtime on asterisk
There are a lot of benefits to the 1.8 branch (Long term support,
Called party id, Multicast RTP, etc) but only you can say if it will
work with your configuration in your environment.
