The older version is also buggy.  It doesn't matter which one you pick. 
  You get bugs in all of them.  Older versions aren't getting fixed. 
New versions sometimes fix old bugs, but introduce new ones.  When the 
new version becomes old, bugs stop getting fixed in it, so you switch to 
the new version again which has new bugs.

The way things are, there's never gonna be a stable KDE version.  Not in 
a billion years.
