I'd consider 0.20.203 pseudo-stable.  It has some significant regressions on non-Linux platforms due to libhadoop.so being a dumping ground for all compiled code.  On OS X, hadoop actually lies about things now. Nine months of testing is useless for those folks if the outcome is another 0.20.203.

For .23, we desperately need to have libhadoop tell the Java code what it supports rather than just assuming that all the functionality is present if the library loads.  I pretty much consider this a blocking issue.
