Is R16 more stable than R16.1.1 ?

Is upgrading from 16 a good idea now, or is it better to wait for the next bugfixes?

Some reports point in that direction, but the most important thing is using the right driver if you are running DR on a PC with Nvidia. Use the studio driver 431.86, not the latest.
Resolve Studio 16.2.2 and Fusion Studio under MacOS Mojave 10.14.6
iMac 2017 Radeon Pro 580 8 GB VRAM and 32 GB RAM
Mac mini 16 GB RAM plus eGFX Breakway Radeon RX 580

In my experience, 16 and 16.1.1 are stable with the NVIDIA driver that Uli mentioned. 16.1 was so unstable I dropped back to 16.1b3 after just a few hours.
DR Studio, Win10Pro 2004/19041.264 - i7-6700K@4GHz, 32GB RAM
RTX 2070 8GB, "Studio" driver 442.19
