Not sure, one of the guys running failover will have to answer that. 
However, there are a number of changes/new features affecting lease 
files and failover so I think it would probably be unwise to mix them 
even if they will work together.

Yes, it was released last week. 3.0.6 is a solid release and you need 
have no worries running it if you don't need the extra features in

4.0.0 will be the next big release and will have IPv6 support. It is 
only alpha at the moment so very much not for production.
