First question: Is it stable at 5.2.2? There was some stability issues recently.

You just have to use the latest one for cobalt and hope for the best.
The latest one appears to be the one you mentioned. If it doesn't have
what you need, you need to get pkgsrc and build it yourself, but you
could start hitting dependency issues. This is the way of things. If
you choose a pkgsrc which is near the same date as the binary package
repository, it might work best.
