[Gluster-users] 1.4 stability

I'm running 1.4qa68 in a production environment.
all the problems I have seem to be around the AFR xlator.

qa 68 seems much less problematic than previous versions but it's 
only been around a day so it's probably too early to pass judgement, 
but prior to this version the AFR was pretty problematic and required 
manual intervention on a very regular basis to keep things in check.

from what I've seen and the speed of progress, my guess would be that 
things would probably be ready for a release candidate toward the 
very end of the year (depending on holidays/vacations and such).

my guess is that they're not quite ready to commit to a release date, 
but my guess is that it'd be sometime in January.

As I understand it going from 1.4pre or 1.4qa to 1.4 release is not a problem.
I've been bumping up versions of qa a few times a week without 
incident.and I believe architecturally things aren't going to change 
so your config files will not require modification and the meta tags 
aren't changing, but I can't say for sure since I'm just a user
