Welcome to our community!

As to your questions about a stable tag to try, if you are interested at
JEE 5, you could try the latest 2.1 branch release -

If JEE 6, you could try 3.0-beta-1,

Don't hesitate to post any problem you might hit when trying those release,
hope you a good journey with Geronimo!
