I am still using the version before Krypton, no real issues at all.

I am using a modified version of Cees' adaptation (Kilauea) and that
uses a ConnectionPool that allocates a new magma session from the pool
for each Seaside session. Works good, and since the sessions are then
pre-pooled, you have no delay.

And generally I am very happy with Magma/Seaside, no big issues at all
and definitely no problems with "seeing each others' changes".

Can't speak for the latest version, haven't made the jump yet. I intend
to pump my base code out later on - just don't have time today. :)
