Not sure I'm seeing all ML messages, so this may already have been
TUG> Is the code written in R2 usable in R3 or not?
Yes. Mostly. :) RT decided that the change from R2 to R3 was the time
to fix some longstanding issues and make some changes that are not
backwards compatible. A lot of code will work, some may need changes,
and some may best be rewritten. That also means you can't expect all
your scripts to run, unchanged, under both R2 and R3, if you want to
deploy both as you transition.

TUG> When can we expect the stable R3?
I don't think anyone can say for sure when R3 will be production
ready, but it is the future, and you should evaluate it yourself to
decide how mature it is, and how much risk you're willing to accept.
