Author Pane is fairly stable now that 2.0 is out. There should only be bug fixes in this snapshot. Occasionally I will need to make a change to accommodate changes to Advanced Forum, though, so test on a dev site before deploying live. AP doesn't store any data. If you find an update to a new dev snapshot breaks something, you can safely restore your backup.
