We are on puppet 3.4. The code needs to be refactored (no matter what version we go to). Are there any serious reasons not to start a new puppet implementation with Puppet 4.2? Our default plan is to go to puppet 3.8 because folks think 4.2 is not ready for prime time. Having to rewrite our code is not a concern.

none I'm aware of. however what I personally do is look for reasons too upgrade - i.e. are there any new features that are really useful? does it fix things that I have that are broken?

generally I'm around 6months + behind a release - however always keen to have latest release running on a test box.

It depends a little on what you are integrated with or if you have any plans to integrate in the near term. Foreman is not compatible with Puppet 4 yet, so if you are using or thinking of using Foreman, you want to stay with 3.8
