Archer Upgrade 5.2 - 5.3 or 5.4
I am currently running Archer 5.2. We are looking to upgrade in the near future. Would anyone recommend upgrading from 5.2 to 5.4 and did you have any issues or should I upgrade to 5.3 first, then move to 5.4? Are there any known issues with 5.4 and would you say it's stable for Production?

I cannot answer this question, but after checking both versions 5.3 and 5.4 (never had 5.2) i can strongly say that 5.4 is the best of them.. thats what you should look up for
Archer 5.4 SP1 is the stable version for PROD usage, but you can't do direct upgrade due to the SQL version difference, i strongly recommend you to take a backup of the 5.2 DB and then import into the SQL 2008 , There is some major changes in the Archer 5.4 which you can download from the exchnage or you can ask support for your understanding.
Let me know if you need any guidance.
We are currently on Archer 5.2 as well and looking forward to upgraded it to 5.4 SP1. I have reached out to Archer Support and they do not think its necessity to upgrade to 5.3 before 5.4 version.
i would highly recommend though to peform an analysis between your current enviornment features vs. the 5.4 SP1 release notes to understand its impact such as DDE, Calcs etc...
