To me Squeak and Seaside versions are two different topics.
It really depends on how you define stable. If you define it in the
Debian way then go 2.7. But 2.7 certainly has several bugs which we
discovered during 2.8 and were not backported. 2.8 quite likely also
has some new bugs which we don't know yet about. That said it has been
running in production for quite a while now so it's deffinetly usable
for a tutorial (www.seaside.st runs on 2.8). In the recent days
several changes and fixes were introduced that have a certain
possibility of breaking stuff but everything looks good so far.
