I've switched to LibreOffice and I'd like to update to 3.6.x but I found 3.6.0 was a little too unstable so I stuck with 3.5.x as the stable option. It works well enough but I see that 3.6.1 is out now and what I am wondering is when the 3.6.x release becomes stable enough for general use?

The first releases of a "final" version, e.g. 3.X or 3.X.0 will be aimed not at all users but specifically at "Innovators, early adopters and power users"; the typical use of this version is described as a "real life test" by the developers. Over time, as the version matures, there will be point releases (3.X.1, 3.X.2 etc) and at some point the developers will recommend a release as a production version which is suitable for conservative users including big corporate deployments. The developers say that LibreOffice 3.X.2, for example, is such a production level release.
