I would suggest 0.7/1.0 (but then of course I would, wouldn't I ;-)
The feature-set is frozen and I began release testing yesterday.

So far my _8_ node cluster (40+ resources) has gotten through almost  
1000 iterations of CTS without a major incident.

Which makes me quite confident in the core functionality carried over  
from 0.6.
The most likely places for bugs are the CLI tools (which are easily  
fixed) or the newer features which haven't been bashed on as much.

And certainly if you start testing now, you can be sure 1.0.0 will  
work great in your environment :-)
