The only free update is a very minor update to Lightroom 5.7.1.
The upgrade to Lightroom 6 is something you must purchase from Adobe.
Lightroom CC and Lightroom 6 do not interfere or change anything you have done in Lightroom 5.7. If you use Lightroom CC or Lightroom 6, you won't lose any photos, and your catalog should be upgraded automatically (you might have to click Yes or OK in one dialog box)
dj have the bugs been worked out in vers 6.3 that were present in lr 6.2 as there were some crash and freeze issues with 6.2 Thanks!!
I use Lightroom 6.3 without any major issues. I think most people aren't having major issues. There are probably others who can't say that.
You pay you money and you take your chances. Or not.
you pay your money for a co that should know their business and produce a product that is literally bug free not like version 6.2 and certainly not for 6.3. you don"t want to download a product that could have some bugs. why take the chance!

There's no such thing.
Both 6.2 and 6.3 (or the CC equivalents) have behaved impeccably for me.
Thanks for your input and you"re right their is probably no such thing as a bug free program,but your co should not have released vers. 6.2 which was loaded with bugs. Thanks!
