Find the version with the features you must have within the current offerings, e.g. 12.2.#-SE, where # is 35, 37, 40, 44, 46, 50, then latest within that version. In theory, later/latest releases within the same version, e.g. 12.2.44-SE, -SE1, -SE2, -SE3, -SE4, -SE5, -SE6, are bug fixes, so they should improve stability. However, within 12.2.44-SE, both SE4 and SE5 were deferred (pulled), so the theory doesn't always hold in practice.
Thanks a lot for your responses but I am looking for a feature which was added in 12.2(35). Since that feature is still present in the successive releases, I am not quite sure if I need to stick to 12.2(35) or move to the later releases.
If you don't need any features beyond those in 12.2(35), I would suggest, generally, only upgrading to the latest version of 12.2(35) unless there's a bug documented in that release that was only fixed in a later version release and this bug impacts your operations. The reason for this suggestion, any time code is changed, there's some chance of introducing new bugs. If the code is being changed only to fix other bugs, odds are there's a net improvement. If the code is being changed to provide new feature(s), odds aren't as good.
