Let's consider the two meanings 'stable' can have in this context :
- first, is the API usable ? Yes. We use it in Apache Directory Server 
and in Apache Studio for more than 6 months, and we only have had a few 
serious issue so far.
- second, considering the API evolution, most of the work has already 
been done. We will most certainly rename the packages before RC1, 
probably improve the schema management too.

So if you intend to use the API for an application which will go on 
production for years, you'll probably better waiting for the package 
renaming to occur (in august). If you want to test it and see if it's 
more convenient than, say, JNDI, then feel free to play with it.

In any case, we will be around to help you if you have issues with the API !

PS : this is the 6th release since february, so the API is evolving 
fast, or at least has evolved fast at the beginning.
