Not really sure at this stage there are many issues - when an OS passes .4 - things tend to be bug fixes, security fixes and some small performance improvements.

Still.... who's to say :)

I usually refrain from major updates until early adopters jump in, but from .4 onwards I tend to do the updates without waiting.
