it seems your question got lost in nirvana.

If stability is your main concern, you will have to stick with 6.3.

7.0 will be available very soon but it might be not as stable as 6.3 
already is.

As you want to run just a webserver, I would still suggest to install 
the currently available version of 7.0 and upgrade it then to the 
release version when available.

The other option would be to install 6.3 now and stick with it until 7.1 
becomes available.
