    Most stable recent version of Media Composer?

    Hi There

    Once again I'm about to update 14 editing computers. With the old version numbering I had somewhat of a clue whether a version might be more stable (i.e. 8.8.5) or whether it's the first version of a bigger update (i.e. 8.0).

    We have all machines on Apple OS 10.12.6 and have been running Avid MC quite stable with version 8.9.4.
    I'm not looking to update the Apple OS, it will stay at 10.12.6.

    Does anyone now about the most stable version of the more recent updates?

     

    Thank you guys in advance!

    no one really got back to me about that question. I can say that 2018.3 is not very stable and had a couple of anoying bugs. Now I run 2018.4 on 8 machines and it's quite ok. Some crashes here and then, but it's okay.

    I think the issue is we get updates every month now and a lot of new features so itrs hard to pick "one" version that stands out.

    I was running a mix of 2018.5 and 2018.7.1 on around 20 systems with few problems under Mac 10.12.6.

    Have been running 2018.7.1 under Mac 10.13.6 and for a few weeks and things seem fine.

    Testing 2018.10 on one system. The editor is complaining a bit but I haven't found any specific problem.
