I thought I had seen such a recommendation (3.8.1) in BUILDING.txt 
before, but apparently my mind played a trick on me. Sorry for not 
having done proper research before posting. Anyway, "recommended" is not 
the right word to use, but this is the wording on 
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/DerbyJUnitTesting:

"The usage of JUnit in Derby is currently based on JUnit 3.8.1."

And then there are direct links to JUnit 3.8.1 information.

Once it has been verified that 3.8.2 works as well as 3.8.1 with Derby, 
I guess we could update those links.

My point was to let folks know that 3.8.2 has some useful improvements 
over 3.8.1, since people may be having a hard time finding this kind of 
information on the JUnit web site or SourceForge.
