I've been using 4.2 a fair bit and its pretty much stable now. There's
most of the features in it that are going to be there; just a few
things to add before getting ready for the next major release.

Yeah - thats just a rename really as 4.2 is not backwards compatible
with 4.1 clients in OpenWire (its a new OpenWire version) and along
with the move to Java 5, the 4.2 release will be renamed 5.0 I think

Yeah I hear you. If you're in development you might wanna go with 4.2
as it should be out in a month or two - but if you are in production
you probably wanna stick on 4.1.1 for a few months until the 4.2/5.0
release is out.
