    What is the most stable version of MC?

    I'd like to upgrade to the most stable, latest "new" version of MC-PC to get the perpetual licence before the impending rate increase. I was on 6.5 forever and found it stable as can be and only upgraded about 3 years ago to get 4K and XAVC support. I never use support, and I don't like to "upgrade" to get as many bugs as new features, that I never use. I use Boris for my Titling, so I'm all good in that regard. So what does the peanut gallery recommend for the most stable build? Thank you.

    MC 2020.06 w/Symphony option. BlackMagic DeckLink 12G, HP Z840 Dual 3.2Ghz/8 Core, 1TB SSD, 1TB Cache drive, 128GB Ram, Nvidia RTX2060 Super, BCC2020,... [view my complete system specs]

    2021.6 has been rock solid in my experience, surprisingly more so than 2018.12.15.


    That said, your Perpetual licence will include a 12-month Support Plan so you can upgrade (theoretically) to 2022.8.

    That move would in all likeyhood "Cover" the release of Windows 11, should you need to replace your PC in the coming year.
