Note : the following is my opinion only, and likely does not represent
the view of the Apache Cassandra project.

The most stable/production ready version of Cassandra is :


I have to say 0.6.8 instead of 0.6.6, because 0.6.8 contains the
(0.6.7-era) patch from CASSANDRA-1676, without which streaming is
broken. However.. 0.6.7 and 0.6.8 contain non-bugfix patches, and in
0.6.7's case there is a regression in that non-bugfix patch. Versions
of the 0.6 branch above 0.6.9 contain still more non-bugfix patches
and regressions. All extant 0.7 releases (0.7.0, 0.7.1) contain major
bugs. The most stable/safe version is, therefore, likely to be
"0.6.6+1676". If you are uncomfortable patching 1676 into 0.6.6
yourself, use 0.6.8.
