Hardwoods move after ripping so arguably the quality
of cut doesn’t matter that much – you’ll still have to
joint the ripped edge.

However, as a practical matter, the Forrest Woodworker
30 or 40T blade is very, very good and to some extent
you’ll be able to rip glue joints with them. Standard
kerf blades yield cleaner edges if you have the power
in the saw to drive them. Forrest does a good job
on the blades, but their are a lot of decent brands
that don’t cost as much – Freud, et al. Just avoid the
thin kerf blades if you want the cleanest cuts from
a cabinet saw.
