    The tantalum input capacitor and tantalum output capacitor for this low-dropout regulator prevent it from oscillating.

    Follow the datasheet. If it fails and you have cut corners for size issues then you could be unemployed quick time even if it works on the bench (which anyone can do). Following the manufacturers advice is best despite not being the most logical way. They don't make these params up for the hell of it.
