Both Magma and Seaside work in 3.7 upwards... the limitation is in the
Installer scripts and Universes.
If you use the squeak-dev image you should be ok.

Personally I have been using 3.10 in production for 3 months... on the
basis that nothing of significance has changed between 3.9 and 3.10,
only bug fixes and more testing. To me this means that the number of
bugs remaining in 3.10gamma cant possibly exceed the number of known
bugs in 3.9, if 3.9 was called 3.9.1 (which I think it should be) then
perhaps people wouldn't be so worried about moving to 3.10.

As far as the limitations in build scripts, I have a plan in progress to
make 3.7,3.8,3.9, Croquet, OLPC, and Sophie all up to a level which can
run Installer scripts. This plan is known as "Operation Level Playing
Field"... watch this space.
