If by "trustworthy" you mean "as rock-stable, fast, and plug-and-play
as RHEL5 + bundled/gitco hypervisor", then I actually suggest DON'T
upgrade. Seriously :)

While latest version have improvements (e.g. vanilla kernel as dom0),
IMHO it actually regressed in some areas. For exampe, you'll no longer
find a blktap kernel module (used for tap:aio and tap:vhd). On some
versions, those features stopped working altogether, while on other
versions it's somewhat functional but slower (using qemu).
