It's correct that 3.2.0b2 fixed many known bugs in 3.1.5, but none of
these were earth-shattering problems. There were many limitations,
though, in the 3.1.x series that required a pretty radical redesign of
many components.

While 3.2.0b2 did fix some bugs, it introduced a whole lot because of
the large number of redesigned/rewritten components. That's why 3.2 is
still in beta. The latest 3.2.0b3 pre-release source snapshot fixes a
lot of the 3.2.0b2 bugs, but there are still some that remain.

If you need the features of 3.2, then use the b3 snapshots, not the
b2 release. If you don't need these features, and the limitations of
3.1 aren't a problem for you, then you'd be wise to stick to 3.1.5 for
a production system until 3.2 gets a bit more of a shakeout.
