News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

[rant]Testnet is awfully hard to use for testing when mining is not consistent.  It's been 4.5 hours since the last block.  I understand needing to test mining setups, but I'm trying to test transaction processing for a website and I can't even seed my test payments into the chain.[/rant]

Look at testnet-in-a-box.  It lets you run a local testnet, and then you can point your gpu miner at it and get several blocks in less than a minute.
