Just a qustion:

what is your advice, which version start to use in production environment in January of 2013?

I guess, safe to start with lates 1.3

While we cannot guarantee that 1.4 is bugfree regarding saving accounting information at this point, I have a fair bit of confidence in it in that regard.  However, what I don't have  a lot of confidence  in at this point is the ability to use it trouble-free in the sense of certain things not breaking etc.  There are some significant structural changes and these may cause headaches as in that report you need right now returning an error, or the like.  As we continue to work through beta these annoyances will reduce quickly, so this is a relatively temporary concern.

If you are interested in contributing to development, 1.4 is clearly the way to go.  It is more feature-rich, more flexible, and development is easier.  If you want something stable and predictable, I think it's a little soon.  Additionally the one area where there has been accounting re-engineering has been to replace relatively untestable COGS code with COGS code that could be (and in fact is) extensively unit tested.  I think the COGS code in 1.4 is the most heavily unit tested portion of the software with tax forms being in second place.
