My client went 4.1 SP8 to 4.2 SP5. We've not encountered many bugs. Some reports have 2000 lines of freehand sql and they are fine. I would say, though, that you have to use the Java Applet with any freehand sql. Using the HTML viewer just doesn't work when validating or saving the SQL after a change. There is a niggle with scheduling, I've just seen one or two examples of a schedule that should kick off at a quiet time being delayed....we're monitoring that at the moment. We were getting core exception error at random, one or two a day, but that is seemingly resolved with -RequestTimeout 3600000. I like the server group exclusivity and also parallel queries on WIPS.

Been on SAP BI 4.2 SP6 for a couple weeks now and seems relatively more stable than SP5.

I forgot to say...the biggest problem with 4.2 SP5 was the promotion management wizard....it promoted content without issue but made a right pig's ear of the security on folders, user groups etc. So painful but not actually a problem post migration icon_cool.gif
