In my personal experience going from a .0 to a .1 or rc1 to rc2 etc
seems to run smoothly but upgrading by a full number can go horribly
wrong depending on your setup, probably best to take a backup of
anything critical in case it goes pear shaped.

Ive never used Mandrake again since that ill fated incident :o)
