I think it's important to test-drive a new branch on one non-production machine as soon as
possible so that they can post bug-reports about their favourite features if there is a problem.
Then a quick try of the various sub-point releases to check single issues would be smart. There
is usually a noticeable drop off in the number of questions to the list once a branch reaches .4
but this last week or so there seems to have been a spike instead.
However, most of those questions have not been about the 3.5.4 (or have been tested on other
releases too) so it's got to be worth trying the 3.5.4.
+1 about testing.
The real issue is not whether a specific release is "business ready" but
rather does the specific release meet your needs or does it have
improvements, bug fixes, etc that make it better for you.
I use 22.214.171.124 from the repository for both business and personal use and
do not have any issues for what I need and do with it. But I have
limited business needs with the most important issue being the ability
to open and to create docx and xlsx files from and for others.

So now that LO 3.5.4 is out,
I ask the users, is it ready to be deployed to my/our business users?
We really need to know.
The last "official" word on the 3.5.x line was that business users would
research the package before downloading and installing it.
Well, I do not know how they will to all that research, or where they
will get the documentation for it, before downloading it.
So I am asking LO users the question.
Is 3.5.4 ready for our business and/or enterprise users?
The doc people are work hard to get more 3.5.x line documentation out,
but to be honest about it people can still use 3.3.x and 3.4.x docs till
3.5.x comes out.
What is the problem with 3.5? What are your conclusions when a user like
me or Tom states that everything is fine with 3.5? I am a completely
untypical user who skipped the whole 3.4 series after writing a bunch of
bug reports. Tom has an entirely non-technical view on the project. The
overall service quality of this particular user list is really bad.
The bug tracker can tell all unresolved issues that do exist in 3.5 but
not in 3.4? Don't ask me how. I file my bugs to the AOO tracker where it
serves both projects.
