Farkas's version is KVM-84, which is the latest, and I have that running here on a clean install of CentOS 5.2 with one W2008 guest.  Call it anecdotal evidence.

As for what will run on that version:
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-virt/2009-February/000876.html
"we only test with intel hosts and a dozens of guests, but this is the first series which seems to stable and really usable"

However, if that version goes into a repository and existing production installations do an update then they may get a KVM version that doesn't work for them.  Or maybe it works but only after a config change.  Is that the issue?  Maybe it should go in the testing repository then.
