5.3 and ext4
 
Is 5.3 and ext4 going to be safe?
I have seen a couple reports of data loss using ext4?
Has this already been fixed?

What does the list recommend? ext3/ ext4?

Thought maybe today we would start seeing 5.3 showing up... Looking
forward to it.

Define 'safe'

No. You've read reports about applications that had relied on a
feature/bug of ext3 eating data when using ext4.

No.

For what application type? I've been running ext4 in development with
apache and it's working okay, but it's also development. I haven't
tested it under any real sort of load. Just to see that it worked.

Like Jim said, not ext4's fault.

Ext4 (actually ext4dev) in 5.3 will be a preview and not meant for general
use. So most people should probably stay with ext3.
