I just got a Defy+ as a gift and upgrade. It came rooted.

I see the overwhelming choice of custom ROMs offered here and got confused.

I wanted to try Firefox OS for one but it was long updated (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...865120&page=17)

So, which to choose from the many Androids? I don't have any special requirements but stability and be it well supported (by the wonderful XDA community).

In the forum of my previous phone (Galaxy Mini) there were 2 threads for a specified custom ROM: one for the developers and one for the users. This designation would be helpful here, too.

Are there distinctive 'stable' releases as well or am I supposed to pick the latest nightly and hope it is more stable than previous day's?

We do not allow best/most stable ROM/Kernel threads on XDA. The reason is everybody has their own opinion, each user has different usage and different needs for their device plus developers do not like seeing their work compared to others.

As for your question about nightlies.. They are the builds which run everyday with the latest patches that have been merged into the repositories. They can contain bugs which are usually fixed the day or few days after that is why there usually always is stable builds every once in awhile.

Edit (after your last post) - and if your looking for CM11 its here
