Just a few comments on this topic...
Also note that - if you're doing Mac builds - with R9.6 the switch was made to the (free) X-code compiler. If you do builds for any earlier versions, you'll also need the old (not free) CodeWarrior compiler, so R9.6 makes a good 'starting point' (I've actually moved up to R10.1 as my earliest for new plugins).
I have an on-going Poll on my site (in the right-hand margin) to try to get some handle on what version my customers are using. It's not a huge data-set yet, but I am pleasantly surprised to see the trend of people keeping fairly up-to-date with new releases (rounded percentages, as of this date)...
...again, there's a lot of room for error with such a small sampling, but there's a fairly significant drop-off of customers as you go back a few versions.
