We thought it was - including getting tested by a some places fairly
intensively before - until bugs started showing up when people deployed
it to production.

We're actively working on a 3.6.3 release, fixing the reported bugs,
and should have a beta out in the near-ish future.  (3.6.3beta1 came
out on 11th Feb, we're still working on a few more patches)

And yeah, not great. :/
