I'll just add that 3.0.5 and 3.0.6 weren't unstable, far from it. 
Consider 3.0.6 and 3.1.0 to be bug and feature releases rather than 
'more stable' - you can read what's changed in the release notes. 
Version 4 is a major feature upgrade to support IPv6, so unless you 
are wanting to do IPv6 then 3.1.0 is what I'd recommend.

If only every bit of software I have to use was as stable !
