Well, while we're at it - I've been running 4.1.x for six months or so.
I installed to my Centos/Fedora servers by building SRPMs. So far it's
been rock solid with our catalog, and didn't require any changes to my
catalog or to IC. I also connect our back office via SSL, where several
other apps share the catalog DB, and that has gone nicely.
