We are considering upgrading to 10.0.2 but are concerned that Tableau 10 has not yet reached "maturity". By that I mean that we still expect a few minor releases of 10. The biggest problem that we have with Tableau is that we constantly have to upgrade our workbooks. So my questions are...
1) How far away is 10.1
2) Will I be able to publish a 10.0.2 workbook to a server running 10.1? Or will I be forced to upgrade the workbook to 10.1?
John, I suggest you look at the compatibility directives here: Desktop and Server Compatibility | Tableau Software
In general I have had no issues publishing to a server that is a version ahead of my desktop. But I do recommend you go through all the possibilities listed to make sure your situations are covered.
