Well there are two ways to answer this question:

Official way:

Well buddy 5.* is stil not stable. So you should not put in on your
production boxes. Since there are high chances that things may blow

Unofficial way:

5.* is pretty old now and has been well tested. IU have run 5.2.1-R on
my systems and I am very satisfied with it. Also 5.* is scheduled to
become stabe since 5.3. 5.3 is already in BETA2, so it should not be
long. In my opinion you can safely run 5.2.1 on your production boxes.

Select the way which apears more seductive to you ;-)
