SCJP6 is the most recent, but there is a new exam (SCJP Plus) coming out. At the moment it is just in beat and no one really knows when it will be released.

Also, be aware that the SCJP 5 and 6 have changed.

If it were me, and I needed to take the exam soon, I'd go for SCJP6; I see no point in sitting the SCJP5 as that is certain to be retired very soon. It is an old version of Java and Java 7 is being released next year.

SCJP 6 Changes
SCJP 5 Changes
SCJP plus
