The Bitcoin Core source code is in a git repository. The repository has multiple branches and tags. The branches are source trees for a major version (e.g. 0.14 releases) and tags are for individual releases.

If you want to use the latest stable version of Bitcoin Core, run the following command:

git checkout v0.14.2

If you want to use the latest source for the 0.14 version series, use

git checkout 0.14

As you can see here the latest version is now the more stable version. As the most recent changes are for bug fixes, etc.

This is a new minor version release, including various bugfixes and performance improvements, as well as updated translations.

If you download a previous version this version may contain those fixed bugs.
