By it's name, SVN can't ever really be considered "stable" until a
branch for release is created. The latest branch that I know of was
Thomas' branch for the Addressbook. That should technically be stable,
except for the addressbook; however, it's still not a production caliber
If you ever check out an SVN, you have to understand that it may contain
bugs and not work properly. You're checking out untested code. Usually
with RC most of the commits are "kosher" and don't impact the stability
of it. But if one does, a patch for it is quickly released.
If you always want the latest stable release, just watch the RC
homepage. That box on the right is the latest general stable build.
Right now I think it's still 0.1-beta2. If you follow the Trac at all,
0.1-RC1 is the next milestone (or so I think) which seems to have ticket
