Obviously you'll want something current so 4.9 is out of the question.
That kind of leaves the 2 distinct branches. These are the 4.x and
5.x and are currently represented by 5.3 and 4.10. Which you want is
rather for you to decide. I recommend trying both. It seems like a
lot of work, but is probably best. Many say that for SMP, 5.3 has
advantages although there have been threads in the lists that argue
both ways. I would recommend trying with 4.10 for a while and 5.3 for
a while and load-testing each to see which performs better and which
best fits your needs.
