What version of Tomcat to use?

I am about to install tomcat, and I'm wondering what version to use. I'm currently using 4.0.4 on another server, but I want to upgrade my tomcat on my new server. The Jakarta site "encourage all users to upgrade to Tomcat 5.x whenever possible.", but I'm worried about installing a unstable version. Any suggestions?
All feedback is deeply appreciated

Tomcat 5.0 is quite stable. Be prepared to read through the documentation, as 5.0 has a number of differences.

I'm using 5.0.28 in production with no instability problems.
