I tested the dev version of jemalloc pretty extensively in a production environment back in November.  My experience (after fixing many regressions) was that it is stable, though it's likely that some subtle regressions have not yet surfaced.  Additionally, I remain somewhat uncertain about the stability of the new heap profiling implementation, but I've fixed all the issues I'm aware of.

Regarding performance, I'm quite happy with the dev version of jemalloc.  It is significantly faster, and its memory layout refinements tend to decrease fragmentation.
