I have been using 1.6.0.x now for a while with minor (non-critical)
issues.   If you already have a working Asterisk system, so you don't
need to replace things right NOW, why not load up 1.6?   That way you
can learn about the changes between 1.4 and 1.6 at your leisure.  For
example, if you're still using Zaptel then you will need to learn the
minimal changes required to go to DAHDI.  Once you are done testing your
server will be at the current level and can drop in as a replacement.
