    Update from 2016 to 2017.2 or go straight to 2018


    I'm in the process of updating from Revit 2016 to a newer version.
    Personally I've never had any huge problems, but recently I've heard some people recommend to wait one year before updating to a newer version.

    The way I see it:
    On the architectural side, we have rather few improvements , over 2017 however considering there are a lot of imrpovements on the MEP and structural side, as well as the now predominant subcription model, I think our partners would want to upgrade to 2018 as soon as possible.

    There probably won't be any more upgrades for 2017 past .2, so whatever new features are available for 2018 .1 .2 and .3 won't be there for us.

    While a newer version of software might be a bit more unstable, it will still generally fix previous versions problems and the updates are more likely to come at a faster pace than for an older version like 2017.

    If you were in my place and had to update from 2016 to either 2017 or 2018, would you jump straight to 2018 or stay at 2017 one more year?
