SH2 is supposed to be more secure. Stability, not sure about. However, one thing to think about... someone can load the local "exploit" dsniff on your machine. This makes ssh1 look as cleartext as telnet. Fortunately, it hasn't been done for ssh2 yet. Personally, I like using RSA keys. Make sure to disable xauth, that's another security risk... etc, etc.
