While Stackless is pretty much fixed feature-wise, we have over the
years uncovered a number of crash bugs.  The best version to use, is
the latest.  Using 2.6.2 when you can upgrade is a bad idea.  It is
very unlikely we will look into crash bugs in 2.6.2.

Beats me, it is not official.  Use the SVN links on the Stackless web
site download page.
