This is a bug fix release in the 2.11 series and therefore all installations of 2.11.x should be upgraded when possible. This version is not yet marked stable'', since it has not yet proven itself to be reliable on production systems over a period of several months. The current stable'' release is still 2.10.*. When we release a new version of Rudder, it needs to be thoroughly tested, and we consider the release enterprise-ready for deployment only after it has been proven to run in production reliably for several months.
