I'd recommend 1.0.0_beta1, incorporating the 'Null Column Dataset' bugfix.
We're actually using it in a 20 person multi-user enviroment currently,
and apart from the speed (which still isn't shabby, but could be
improved to 0.76 speeds) it works very well.
There isn't a 'build' available currently that includes the bugfix, and
actually compiles, but its merely a case of downloading the 1.0.0_beta1
source and adding a single line into a single file.
If you want details of the patch, give me a shout.
