which lame version?


This is a good question!


The history of hydrogenaudio has shown (and even the newest ABX tests prove this) that the newest encoder is not always the best

Can anyone link a recent structured test with more than just a couple of test samples using say LAME 3.90, LAME 3.98 and the latest 3.99? At 150-200Kbps mark?

At some point it was accepted here to trust the LAME developers that they know what they're doing. So unless someone finds that the latest version is seriously flawed, HA generally recommends the latest version.
I don't think there were recent public listening tests with different LAME versions. It's easy to find single (killer) samples that show slight regression, but the overall quality is thought to improve with every version. So you'll need a public listening test with a lot of participants and a wide choice of samples to prove that an old version is specifically better than the latest one. I think in most cases they would come out tied.
