Our workflow has been to create a release branch when we make a release. We then port crucial bug-fixes to the release branch. Our day-to-day development takes place on the trunk, which can sometimes be unstable.
If we were ever to convert completely to git, I would suppose that we'd want to maintain some sort of similar setup.
