The WebKit version number is stored in a number of Version.xcconfig files scattered around the source tree, such as Source/WebKit/mac/Configurations/Version.xcconfig. I believe the FULL_VERSION variable is what you want.

Each vendor that ships WebKit makes its own determination as to which builds are "stable" or not. In fact, shipping versions of WebKit often come from branches that are created specifically to create stability. I don't know of any frequently-released builds that are marked as more "stable" than those at nightly.webkit.org.
