I would recommend it -- it is going to live sites at the end of the
month, as it goes beta (and thence to release). Stability is pretty
good at this point -- virtually everything done after this should be
backward compatible. We have one or two little anomalies with sessions
(we are allowing sharable cookies with other site-wide processes) but
there shouldn't be many more surprises.

Remember, this is in the admin -- the thing we sort of figure not
too many people will change. The core should be more stable.

In general, if we release a .tar.gz package it will be ready within
two months. If you have to get it via CVS, who knows?

I still recommend monitoring CVS for bug fixes, though. We are doing
that fast and furious.

I have a cop friend who thinks he ought be able to give a new ticket;
"too dumb for conditions".
