Apple has updated OS X Server, the application that runs on top of OS X Mountain Lion to expand the system's server feature set.
The update adds several bug fixes, though the 'What's New' section includes a number of new features that were originally added back in December 2012.
- Fix for administering Profile Manager from iPad mini.
- Support for using bonded or virtual network interfaces in Server.
- Fix for setup failures due to an SSL error.
- Fixes for upgrading from Lion Server.

OS X Server is available for $19.99 on the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]

I had an absolutely catastrophic update when i attempted to go from Snow Leopard to Lion:
did you know that when you update to Lion Server, it *removes* all your web sites? and PHP? That there is no longer any way to maintain virtual hosts? That even configuring them via command line is near impossible, even for a veteran unix guru?
So my Q is, is all this fixed?
Went from 10.5.8 Server to 10.6.3 server a few years ago. It was DNS and OD master with around 300 users. That went well.
But, I rather do a clean install and import the necessary data. If the server was as "default setup" as possible, then upgrading usually works well.
Just make sure you have fall-back strategy: make a bootable dmg of the origininal server boot-volume before upgrading.
