While it is not often that I would disagree with Andreas, I would say
that the answer on this point depends upon your timing. Right now, if
stability is your primary driver (and it sounds like it is) then I would
recommend 1.8.7-wc1. The early feedback from 2.1 is very encouraging,
but I think that we need a little more production feedback before we
could confidently assert that 2.1.x is the default option.
