No, I'm just putting out betas when I feel like it. I probably won't
release the stable version until start of April.

There is a new "Enable Spam Bounce" option, for which the docs are below.
Feel free to tell people not to use it. The default value is "no".

# You can use this ruleset to enable the "bounce" Spam Action.
# You must *only* enable this for mail from sites with which you have
# agreed to bounce possible spam. Use it on low-scoring spam only (<10)
# and only to your regular customers for use in the rare case that a
# message is mis-tagged as spam when it shouldn't have been.
# Beware that many sites will automatically delete the bounce messages
# created by using this option unless you have agreed this with them in
# advance.
Enable Spam Bounce = %rules-dir%/bounce.rules
