I'll leave this question to Jan, our release manager, but I'll give  
you my input as well: H4, as a whole, is probably stable enough at  
this point for knowledgeable people to start using it with the normal  
warnings that it is still not yet production ready. Some applications,  
like IMP and Kronolith, are actually very solid at this point.  That  
being said, this is *not* production ready code, as there are very  
likely bugs lurking under the surface, as well as some internal code  
changes that still need to be made.

> What is the roadmap for H-4

We actually don't have a single, *official*, roadmap for Horde 4. How  
we handle this in the future is something we are in the process of  
discussing.  Anyway, there is some information on each of the  
application's web pages at http://www.horde.org  (e.g.  
http://www.horde.org/horde or http://www.horde.org/kronolith).

There is also (probably more current) information on our wiki  
regarding what still needs to be done and/or discussed for Horde 4:  
http://wiki.horde.org/Horde4/BCBreaking, and probably a few other  
pages that a search for Horde4 should turn up.

> Some of the daily snapshots have two versions, such as horde and horde-
> FRAMEWORK. What is the difference

The snaps that have the FRAMEWORK_3 text in the name are CVS snapshots  
of Horde 3 code (e.g., horde-FRAMEWORK_3-2010-08-09.tar.gz is the base  
horde package for Horde 3, framework-FRAMEWORK_3-2010-08-09.tar.gz are  
the framework libraries for Horde 3).

The snaps named with *.git.tar.gz are the Horde 4 git snapshots.
