Actually, Dapper Drake is version 6.06, which is a Long Term Support
(LTS) release. The next LTS release is scheduled to be version 8.04,
which will be a direct upgrade from version 6.06. LTS versions have a
minimum of three years of support for the desktop version, and five
years for the server version. The regular releases have a minimum of 18
months support. You can verify this here:

The only truly experimental version released was Edgy, version 6.10,
when Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu´s parent company, requested as
much cutting edge software as possible be included as could be.

So, for stability, I would stay with dapper drake until the release of
the next LTS version, and then upgrade to that when it is released.

Good luck,
