How stable is SW 2017?

I am looking at making a serious upgrade from SW 2013 SP5 + EPDM + Driveworks 9 to either SW 2017 SP1 (when it comes out) or to SW 2016 SP5. I was wondering how many people have been testing SW 2017 and what issues they have been reporting. I talked to my VAR (they are a great bunch) and their comment was that they haven't had to help anyone moving to SW 2017. Most are moving to SW 2016 SP5.


My concern with moving to SW 2016 SP5 is that we don't make jumps often. We have a complex system and IT "group" has kept putting off building out the "new" full test and development environments. I was set to roll to SW 2016 in March of this year...and well, here I sit. Since we've spent over $120k in maintenance since 2013..I don't want to install a version, 2016, that will not be supported in 2 years time.


Thanks for the input!
