MySQL enterprise version is 5.0, and that's what they recommend, however, they will support 5.1-rc as well (You just have to note that it's rc, so there are still some bugs being worked out).

We've been using 5.1-rc in production for almost a year now as an Enterprise Customer because we needed the partitioning functionality. We've hit a few bugs with replication, but they were not major and quickly fixed or had workarounds. We've only found one performance based bug related to partitioning and innodb, but there was a simple workaround for that as well.

The support that comes with MySQL enterprise version is really top notch, and the Enterprise monitor is great as well. Partitioning works great, and for a first release of partitioning I would give it an A. Being very familiar with both SQLServer and Oracle partitioning use in production, I'd say MySQL's partitioning implementation is a lot better than SQLServer's, but not as good as Oracle's (missing a couple features like global indexes, and waiting for some things like parallel querys and some optimizer improvements - both of which are currently being worked on, and I would assume will show up some time in 6.x)
