It's listed as "unstable" in the sense of "I might change the API" and
that is mainly for new features that are not related to the codec itself
(echo cancellation, ...). Also, because I do more changes, the
likelyhood of breaking things is slightly higher. That being said, the
overall quality (and even "stability" in the sense of how much I trust
the code) is much higher in the latest 1.2beta releases than for the
1.0.x branch.
