I also agree with this analysis.

+1 here as well. Maybe add that 3.11.x, that is described as 'very stable'
above, aims at stabilizing Cassandra after the tick-tock releases and is a
'bug fix' series and brings features developed during this period, even
though it is needed to be careful with of some the new features, even in
latest 3.11.x versions.

I did not work that much with it yet, but I think I would pick 3.11.2 as
well for a new cluster at the moment.

C*heers,
