1.4, and 1.6-series have no support anymore. 1.8 is an LTS and have 
support currently, but this is also true for 11 and asterisk 11 will be 
supported longer.

You have the full list here:

I would go for Asterisk 11 in your case. You will have to think of it 
more like a migration than an upgrade thought, as a lot has happened 
since asterisk 1.4.

On a side-note, I still run some old installations with a current Dahdi 
+ Asterisk 1.4.44 and they work great together. There is the non-support 
catch however.

Good luck!
