No, it's not as stable, because RHEL lags behind Fedora by a year or so,  
but that doesn't mean that Fedora is unstable.

Yes, more recent releases are less stable, by definition. Choosing what to  
use is a constant trade-off between stability and requiring new features  
and performance improvements.

I'm glad that MailScanner has a policy of regular releases with new  
features, I'd hate to be stuck with the last "stable" version that was  
perhaps five years old!
