We are moving from PDMLink 9.1 to either 10.1 or 10.2. Is there anything that says stop at 10.1 or is 10.2 clean and green to update to? All responses appreciated.

If I were starting now, then I would go straight to 10.2 and deal with the latest problems on that system rather than fighting the "its fixed in 10.2 ... but we can make a patch for 10.2" game. Overall, I suspect that early builds of 10.2 will have some growing pains, certainly more than a later build of 10.1, but it will have more functionality, and your support for patches will get quicker attention since PTC is good at supporting new Windchill versions when a customer runs into any kind of reproducible problem during an upgrade.
We are on 10.1 now. We plan to go to 10.2 in 2015 only because we are in a large, manual data conversion effort linking our CAD to WTPart data this year and next year, and we don't want to delay that with a major upgrade until after the conversion.
