But as we are not very sure about the stability of post 7.2.1 versions, refrained from doing that. Could you please suggest me which version is the best in terms of stability, performance and minimal bugs. We want to upgrade this on both our Windows as well as Linux environments.

Both 8.0.8 and 8.1.4 are light years ahead of 7.2.1 in terms of both
stability and performance.

Both 8.0.8 and 8.1.4 are quite stable.  My recommendation would be for
an upgrade would be to go to 8.1.4 on Linux.

You might need to use iconv (a linux tool) to fix any encoding issues
that have snuck into your data while using 7.2.1
