About this versions considerations, I'm starting a new app using Seaside and

I would start with stable versions (Seaside 2.3.2 and Mewa to this Seaside)
or Seaside 2.5 and his corresponding Mewa version?

The question point mainly to know how many effort could be needed after to
migrate my app and what features I'm lacking using oldests (stables)

Thanks in Advance.
