5.10.0 isn't a development release as the even number in the second
place denotes. However, perl.com states that:
"The maintenance version of Perl is 5.8.8.
This is a stable, tested release that you should use in production environments."
So 5.8.8 is recommended.
FYI: Some patches for 5.10.0 have been applied to Interchange's development branch.
