Definitely 2.2, *but* early 2.2 versions had very bad bugs. I'm using
2.2.10 (latest development) on this very small production/test rig and
regularly switch "back" to 2.1.x (latest was 2.1.29, so-called stable)
for comparison. I see no stability problems with 2.2.10 and wouldn't
hesitate to use it under production conditions.

Bear in mind that you'll have to upgrade your database from ldbm to bdb
(should be version 2-x-patched 4.2.52).

You'll probably find that the differences in what's possible with the
latest 2.1 and 2.2 are almost breathtaking in comparison to 2.0.
