Well, in general, upgrading can be a major effort and you always have
the risk that stuff will break in unexpected ways. Obviously,
problems and the effort to fix them are potentially expensive and
customers may loose their confidence.
In particular, I haven't looked in detail what happened in 3.10, but
since 3.9 has proven to be a very good release (excluding the
recently addressed production problems, which have been around for a
long time), we will stick to for now. In summary, I trust in 3.9 more
than in 3.10 and I don't know a reason that would justify the
potential hassle to upgrade.
