Well there is a 0.8.2 that is out or coming out in days or even hours 
and you might want to use that if you stick to the 0.8 branch.

 From my use of 0.9 I think it's very stable.  It's a minor release 
branch which means its for new features and may introduce API changes.  
However the changes are not that difficult to keep up with if they even 
require alterations to your code.

I think it depends on when you want to release your product which uses 
MINA.  If it's in a few months you might want to stick to 0.9.  I 
personally feel very comfortable with MINA feature branches and ApacheDS 
moves with MINA head most of the time.

Hope this helps,
