Visual Studio for building plugins

What is currently the best/safest Visual Studio version to build plugins (32/64 bit) with? 2008 or something newer?

I compile mine using VS2013 and have no complaints.  Though I had to be careful to maintain XP support.  There's a toolset option in the introjucer. 

The latest code I'm doing is with the 'not-recommended for production code' CTP_Nov2013 compiler. Though haven't spotted any  problems with it yet that affect what I'm doing. 

I have built one freebie with 2013 as well. With no serious complains. But I am not sure if it is ready for serious business production. I read some complains about 2013 at KVR Developer Forum a while ago. So I was wondering if something has change since.
