I like to have the latest greatest just like everyone else, but I do not enjoy waiting on all of the bug fixes with a new product. Version 9 has been out a while now and I am ready to upgrade so here is my question. I'll be moving from ver 8.5 to the latest ver 9 release. Are all of the bugs worked out and what is the main new features I can expect to see? Thanks

I finally made the jump from 8.5 to 9, so I came looking for any threads on the subject of upgrading. Warped Mind, I had to smile at your question, "Are all of the bugs worked out?" It reminded me of this cartoon.
Bugs by definition are unknown. My guess is that there are still "bugs" in the latest version. If there aren't, someone will claim that if it does not work exactly the way they THINK it should, then it must be a bug. So based on that, anyone want to bet me dollars to donuts? Hmmmm?
