System Software Version:  Cisco IOS Software
       
 Product/Model Number:      AIR-AP1142N-A-K9
 Top Assembly Serial Number:      FTX1532EC3A
 System Software Filename:      c1140-k9w7-tar.124-25d.JA1
 System Software Version:      12.4(25d)JA1
 Bootloader Version:      12.4(23c)JA1

I am looking for the most current firmware upgrade.

The links here show different versions and releasse dates.  https://software.cisco.com/download/type.html?mdfid=282439881&flowid=6789

Which do I use?  Autonomous AP IOS or IOS Boot images?  And why are the dates more in common...more current in one version?

You have Autonomous code on the AP, so you need the Autonomous version of code.  The most recent version is c1140-k9w7-tar.153-3.JAB.tar

https://software.cisco.com/download/release.html?mdfid=282439881&flowid=6789&softwareid=284180979&release=15.3.3-JAB&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=ED&reltype=latest

You won't need the IOS Boot Image.

Thanks.

How do you tell it's Autonomous code?

Can I upgrade from my current version directly to the most current without any issues?

In the filename: c1140-k9w7-tar.124-25d.JA1

k9w7 means Autonomous
k9w8 means Lightweight

You can upgrade the AP to whichever version you want without any issues.  The bootloader will automatically be upgraded along with the radio firmware if required.
