We are upgrading from HFM 188.8.131.52 and have a choice of upgrading to either 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11. We ideally want to upgrade to 18.104.22.168 as there are no major changes in architecture. Is 22.214.171.124 fairly stable? Which one would people recommend? Do you have any issues with regards to Premier support from Oracle on 126.96.36.199?

I am a HFM consultant and have worked on both 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
For 220.127.116.11, I think it is quite stable. We have already gotten success on many projects.
For 18.104.22.168, it is a new version last year. There are some changes when do configuration. You need to be very careful at the installation. But for the application itself, I think it is also stable.
I've been working in 22.214.171.124 continuously for over 9 months now and really like it. 126.96.36.199 just came out and it has a few improvements from 188.8.131.52 that I think are pretty cool as well...the main one being the ability to migrate data as an LCM artifact. The other is the ability to view FR reports via mobile devices. One thing about both of these versions is that there's a chance premiere support will be extended from 2015 to 2017. The other thing to consider is 184.108.40.206's likely (via patch) support for other products such as IE10, Windows 8, Office 2013, and Windows Server 2012. Going to one of these newer versions might result in some savings in the long run.
