I have tested it (before uploading) on a mail server with around 1 million
deliveries / month... it worked nicely. There is one thing though in
1.0b10... the options.html template has changed, but the postinst script
warns you about it, and tells what you should do.

In a mail severay days ago Barry said there were still several issues, so
we should wait for b11... so if b8 works for you so far, you could wait a
few more days...
