There is only one version of dovecot-lda; that in CVS. There is no
official/final release of it yet.

I'm usually synced up to both in CVS (non critical machine) and at the moment it
works OK. I doubt you'd have problems mixing dovecot-lda CVS with anything
remotely recent but you should ideally run latest alpha release (or CVS if you
track the changes) of dovecot also.

The deliver binary in the main dovecot tree has been deprecated, going by recent
commit messages to CVS, and is no longer compilable in the dovecot tree. You
will need to pull the lda branch separately from the CVS server and build it
alongside dovecot, and configure the lda in dovecot.conf.
Btw I'm yet to see a good reason why you wouldn't use the lda unless you want to
maintain procmail recipes as is or some other unique delivery mechanism.
I'd say going by the changes in CVS, it is only a matter of short time before
the deliver code is pulled from dovecot, and the once-separated
super-sieve-ehnahced lda merged in to become part of the core package.

It seems pretty stable now, so only Timo can reveal that ;-)
I haven't got any outstanding issues with the LDA, however I've a handful on the
core dovecot right now which I have worked around one way or another.
Have you looked at http://wiki.dovecot.org/ and through the information on there?
