V5 is fine for production, H2 is not (yet).

V5.1 will be out in two weeks, and it will have better H2 support,
but exactly how good is too early to say yet.

>Is the h2 support limited to the browser2varnish interaction? 

Yes, for now we are only implementing H2 on the client side.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
