You should definitely sit on 8.x until 10.x will become stable, or 
upgrade to 10.x from 9.x (at least this is what I do).
Carp is entirely rewritten in 10.x branch. In the same time, in 9.x carp 
seems to be desperately broken: for example I was experiencing weird 
panics on boot, weird behaviour, and, when enabling WITNESS, lots of 
carp-related LORs. Furthermore, I was completely unable to boot up with 
a ipv6-enabled carp - I had to initialize it in multiuser with a custom 
script. All of this doesn't happen on 10.x, which I had to upgrade to. 
Right now, if we're talking about carp, my 10.x production works like a 
charm. 9.x branch just isn't destined to production. The situation is a 
bit improved on 9.1, but still I can compare this release to 4.6 or 5.0.
