Just another perspective on this - I think it's at least as important, if not more so, to consider how long a given version/release/patch set has been available as it is to consider which sequence number it is. For example, upgrading to 11.1 now that it has been out for a while might be safer than upgrading to 11.2 immediately after it comes out, since most of the bugs are likely to be worked out of 11.1 and 11.2 is more likely to introduce a whole new set of bugs. If you're really wanting to play it safe and insist on waiting for 11.2, then I think you'd probably be best off at least waiting for the first patch set -, and then wait until that has also been out for at least one full month before putting it into production.

Looking at Metalink Note : - 39691.1 explanation of Oracle's version numbers. I would expect lot to go wrong when first digit (Major DB release) of version number changes as opposed second digit (DB maintenance release).
