Apache 2 is stable enough to be used, conditional on doing your own
testing to assure that everything works properly on your site.  Of course,
the same is true for Apache 1.3.  It is always your responsibility to
assure that the software works properly for you.

A final release of Apache 2 may come very soon, but it is really
impossible to predict with accuracy.  It depends on the priorities of the
various developers involved.  However, it has been running on
for a long time, and has been very stable there.  I think it is ready for
production use, again conditional on extensive testing in your own setup.
