5 is almost -STABLE (it is no longer the development branch, as of a couple 
weeks ago). The 5.3 release, which will be the first 5 on the -STABLE branch, 
is due out at the beginning of October. If you want to play around with 
something before that, they're currently releasing betas of 5 and you can use 
one of those. I've been using the 5 branch for quite some time, and have 
found it quite stable (if not yet officially -STABLE). I did have a problem 
with 5.3-BETA3, but that will be fixed in BETA4.

I don't believe 4.x supports AMD64.
