I'd recommend 2.4.x (XNDx) unless you REALLY need the BGP PIC features in
2.5. 2.4 was the first release to support L2VPNs and should be mature enough
in it's general support of MPLS/VRFs. 2.5 is still VERY new and was only
released publicly in December.

2.4.2 still has a few bugs but for the features you've listed above, should
be stable enough. After running it since it's release (2.3.2 previously)
I've not seen a software crash on any of our ASR1Ks. I run a mix of RP1 and
RP2 devices and since this an ASR1002 you'll be after the RP1 code.
