Best method of ROS Fuerte + Gazebo

I am new to using Gazebo, but have been using ROS for a while now. I notice that ROS still packages an old version of Gazebo (1.0.2). I notice that most questions on this forum address the newer version 1.2. I need to create a mobile ground robot, use 3D mapping etc. Would there be an advantage in using the newest version of Gazebo and just writing a ROS plugin for it? Or would it be a waste of time, and perhaps using the older version of Gazebo 1.0.2 is enough?

I ask mostly for opinion based on experience if it matches my plans.
