Hop 3.x has been in the works for a couple of years but I think they
never put out a proper release.

So I think it’s OK to upgrade to this “RC”.  (Even though I preferred
2.5 since 3.x is actually a JavaScript implementation…)

As for testing, I’d say that if the tests pass, that’s OK.

Thank you!
