188.8.131.52 is a stable, legacy release of concrete5.
Released on September 11, 2015.
Version 7 is stable and a joy to use. If you're building something from scratch, use it.
Version 6 (legacy) remains supported and has lots of add-ons and themes in the marketplace. If you're comfortable with older concrete5 and you want to quickly throw some extensions together, use it.
There is no upgrade path from 5.6.x to 5.7.x, you'll have to migrate content manually.
concrete5 itself is free and open source, but you'll still need to pay someone to host your site.
You can pay the team behind concrete5 to host your site. You'll be supporting the project and you'll get top-notch support.
You can also host your concrete5 site on just about any budget host, here's a few we like.
