Phoenix V3 certainly has some remaining hick ups with certain
But overall I believe its quite stable. Besides, we will never know if
it is really mature enough
when everyone decides not to use it cause they think its not mature
enough. Viscous circle.
I recently ported spirit to Phoenix V3. It was an effort of about a
week with only minor changes. The
test runner result look okayish ( http://tinyurl.com/3ekulem ).
Working on resolving these issues in
the next few days.
I think porting to Phoenix V3 now is the best option: Phoenix V3
hasn't been part of an official release yet,
this means we can change some APIs or semantics easily if you find
something that is not working out quite
well with your use case.
