mod_jk is stable and works fine with apache2 and all tomcats. 
There is a bug in the tar.gz, but the CVS head is tested and works
great. We'll update the tars on the first release of tomcat. 

mod_jk2 is getting close to feature-complete, but you should stick with
mod_jk for production until ready.

mod_webapp is _not_ the "next generation" nor "replaces" mod_jk. 
It's just another connector, wrote by a different person in a different
way. It's author doesn't like mod_jk, and people working on jk don't
like webapp - you can choose whatever _you_ like.
