Whether it's usable depends on your application and your requirements.
Apps will run, but it's still a little too buggy for the
production-quality release of a complex application.  Some problems that
I noted were: broken printing, broken drag-and-drop, lack of widget
focus indicators, poor drawing of disabled buttons, and lack of busy
cursor display.

Just wanted people to know what they were getting into before spending
lots of time compiling.
