Understand CDH Versioning

Explorer
Hi,
 
We are looking to build a hadoop cluster using CDH.  I see that there are various versions of CDH (5.5,5.6,5.7,and 5.8). 
 
Besides the hadoop ecosystem components that are bundled differently between each version, is there a versioning nomenclature that is used to indicate whether a version is more stable than another?  Furthermore, is there a public roadmap that is available?
 
Thanks,
Pavan
