FastMail is running 2.3.10 on all our production systems now, and
there are no regressions that I'm aware of.  There are still some
bugs that also existed in 2.3.9, but we aren't patching against
any "bugs" rather than "things that don't work how we would prefer".

The two big "new" bugs that we found in the 2.3.10pre3 codebase when
we rolled that out into production had their fixes accepted back
upstream before the final 2.3.10 was cut.

That said, we're seeing slightly more skiplist corruption than
previously and have not yet determined the cause.  We're backing
up a text-dump of our mailboxes.db files once per hour just in
case - but it's highly probable that the issues are due to
something odd we're doing with long running cyr_dbtool processes.
