FWIW, I was in the same position as you a few months ago - green field
development; didn't want to develop against an API that would soon
become out-dated; wanted to be using a version that people would be
enthusiastic about supporting.

I chose to go with the alphas, and yes - there were a few bugs, but
patches for actual bugs were accepted promptly.  I haven't been
affected by any changes for a couple of beta iterations now (and I
have tests to verify), so things seem to be fairly stable.

Also, I found the iBATIS user guide is up-to-date.  I think found one
thing that appeared to be out-of-date, and it was marked as such (no
idea if it's fixed now).  For Javadoc, I just checked out the source,
and ran:
    mvn javadoc:javadoc
... and dumped a copy on our local web server.

Up to you.  If I were to do it again, I'd choose v3.
