Should I bother to upgrade to 6.4r2?

We are a public school system with just under 100 AP330's and we'll be adding more of them later this year.  Our HMO is at 6.2r1a and everything is working fine.  I've read through the release notes and see no great reason to upgrade to 6.4r2 at this point.  Am I missing anything?

I AM BIASED, take my comments for what they're worth.

I would not have allowed version 6.4r1 to be released if I hadn't believed it was of higher quality than recent previous releases.

The new and enhanced features in HiveOS 6.4 and HiveManager 6.4 may not be compelling to you, but if you've experienced any of the issues mentioned in the 6.4 release notes under Addressed Issues, then I advise you to go ahead and upgrade. 

Also, if you encounter issues in the future, our development engineers are most familiar with the most recent code releases and generally can troubleshoot on those releases quicker than on older code they have to pull from our archives and re-read to re-familiarize themselves with.

Hi we are also a private school chain in 9 location with AP330, and full WIFI based infrastrukture for users. I experienced some problems with the latest upgrade with spesificly intermittent connectivity issues which went fully away when i rolled back to the "old" version of the HiveOS. They released a revised version couple of days later, but i havent tried to do a test again after a full day of a frustration from the users. I personally will wait for next version, or do a try again when the vacation starts in couple of months...
