I'm thinking of upgrading 1.2.2, primarily to see if it's any quicker

No, probably it won't be. It's a big, huge program and the window stack
is something fierce. Only one I ever ran that seriously taxed remote X.
[Notably, OpenOffice-ximian does not]. The 2.0 UI, along with GNOME 2.6,
along with GTK 2.4 whenever it's released, should do much better.

3) What *is* the version available 

1.4.5 is the currently release stable version.

Seems like 1.4.x is ok

It's excellent. Go get it. The upgrade should be smooth.

, and lots of people don't like
1.5 due to UI changes

a) 1.5 = development code

b) "lots of people" = one whiner that I heard of. The rest of the
community either thinks the new UI rocks, or are at least biding their
time to come to judgement about it after it's actually released as 2.0

Frankly, since none of us really have any choice if we want to take
advantage of Evolution into the future, I personally think it's a bit of
a lame debate. The UI is what the UI is - and ALL of us got to comment
about it and give feedback 6 months ago.
