The current kernel has several issues. One major are NFS lockups. A fix
is in the stable queue. This is a stopper to me.

Beside this it has sound issues on my notebook introduced by the MSI
changes. It also has KMS issues related to MSI. The KMS can be solved
by using UMS or boot option pci=nomsi.

There's a new stable release review just going. Grek has 156 patches in

I think we should wait for and maybe even longer. There's no
need to hurry. Moving the kernel will also force us to move mesa/libdrm
for new nouveau and ati drivers.
