In the table:

  • The levels shown under the minimum level heading are considered stable release levels. Clients running at or later these levels might remain in place unless an update is required for specific fixes or new function.
  • The levels shown under the advised level heading are considered stable release levels that accumulate a reasonable amount of runtime in Client environments, and contain critical fixes.  To upgrade, choose a level from this column, unless a higher level is required for specific fixes or new function.
