I don't think it is ready. And even if it is ready some day I don't think it will come out so stable that you can implement everything you have been doing in the previous versions straight away (personal experience, I have been using ros-gazebo since diamondback. It does take some time for versions of ROS and Gazebo to come to a sync and by that time the next version of ROS will come out).

The most stable version for turtlebot simulation is fuerte 1.8.11. I have been using this for quite some time and it is very stable. Tele-operation to autonomous navigation, everything works fine. But even with this version, if your computer is not good enough (less than 2.2 Ghz proccessor, nvidia graphics etc) the simulation with turtlebot might crash often or just two wheels of the turtlebot will appear etc.. (run top on a terminal when running gazebo + nodelet manager + AMCL + rviz, you will understand).
