Yes, if you are going live right now with something 3.6 is for sure the way
to go. IBO4 is improved in areas but due to new development I am still
running it through the batteries of tests needed. This is why I still carry
the BETA label so you won't go live with it just yet. (Although all my
systems are already live with it, I know the code well enough to spot all
sorts of little things others would miss.)
