Version 3.x is quite possibly my favorite music manager of all time. You might change your tune when you install the latest 4.x and experience its bugs first hand; also, it will give you the proper frame of reference to those who are less than pleased with the transition.

I guess changing database backends is not as nearly as drastic as adding support for other media files, streaming options, etc.
