I'd go with that old saying, never touch a running system. 4.11 is still
going to be maintained for quite a long time, so if your machine runs
fine now, why not leave it as it is.
If you want to upgrade, maybe you should wait a bit longer and give 6.0
a closer look (set to be released in August at the moment). My current
impression is that it's stabler than 5.4 (but then, other people have
reported otherwise - I suppose it's somewhat hardware-dependent).
