It doesn't look like 1.0.1 packages were ever created for 8.04, but you can get 1.0 from the archives.
1.0.1 just added a handful of minor bugfixes; if you're not affected by any of the bugs on the list, 1.0 should work just as well.

Otherwise, just download the latest development version. Unless there is a regression affecting an app you want to run, you will get better performance from the newest version, and can achieve the same degree of stability as the "stable" branch by simply not upgrading unless you have to.
