Yeah, I guess it's about time to upgrade, being over 3 years behind the times.  Now up on the 2015/11/12 version...

But really, the GA version was pretty stable for me.

I would venture a guess that from the posts here - most of us are running the development version, and running it 24/7 forIGATE or other purposes.

I can't remember when I started, but I have been running the development version under WINE on a Linux box for "years".  There have only been a couple of instances (which were very short lived) of updates that ended with a "roll back" to the previous version.
Again, from the posts,  some people are running the development version at sites that are "not as easily accessible".  these may not update immediately to a new developemnt version, but with quick responses to posts by Lynn at each release (development of general), everything is addressed quickly and updates to the new development version at these locations are typically only delayed a week or so (if the user is concerned).

Many have RDC or VNC on the remote site, so a roll back may not require a "site visit", which makes it even easier.

Hi Lynn,

Um, yeah... Clumsy wording on my part. By "better" I meant "more
stable". Development usually starts with breaking things (at least, the
way I do it!), before it gets polished and wonderful again. We've been
anxiously awaiting for the polish to dry...

The only ports I have are for the Internet, and a serial KISS port for
my MFJ TNC (default command strings).
