ZFS status now in June? / stable enough for a file server?

I have a backupserver running CURRENT with ZFS on a 500gb volume.
I use ssync and nfs to sync our production server, and do hourly 
snapshots since 2-3 month.
It never paniced or something like that and is a lot faster than my 6.2 
box was.
