I just commented on this, so I'll try not to be redundant.

I do think it is ready for primetime, though last I checked the latest
official release was stale. That's sort of an institutional issue that
would need to be addressed. It's a valid issue, but as it is GPL, it is
an issue that at worst could be addressed with a fork to new maintainer.
And I have not needed to check for updates recently, so it may not even
be a problem.

I find it to be much easier to install and configure, and just ast
secure. Once I switched, I had no thoughts of going back.
