I think that 3.9.0beta is pretty good, but its binary footprint is 
slightly different than what its final release will provide.  If this 
is not important to you, then it is better than 3.8.2.

The 4.0.0beta3 is definitely "getting there" (I normally use 4.0 
development code) but I am now seeing a failure on SPARC 64-bit which 
didn't seem to be there a week or two ago. It just passed my own test 
suite on OS-X PowerPC 32 and 64-bit. Depending on how your code is 
written, using 4.0.0 might require some small source code changes due 
to using 64-bit file offsets.  If you are doing work to last for the 
long term, maybe this is the way to go.

The 3.8.2 version works ok on 32-bit Intel.  Otherwise it is a bit 
like an older car that still looks new in the right light, but the 
owner knows where all the dents and dings are, and about the low 
oil-pressure. :-)
