Same here, my m0n0 with the longest uptime (see http://img.m0n0.ch/gallery/171.jpg + some weeks as
this is not a recent screenshot) is still a beta and never had any issues (serving IPSEC, PPTP,
Trafficshaping, Firewalling for a remote office with clients completely working at the main
location). It runs fine since it was set up without changing/restarting anything, only 2 PPTP User
changes happened during that time.

However I roll out new systems with the most recent version of m0n0wall usually.
