So far it is working fine.  I would suggest adding some upgrade tips to the 
release notes.

 o Be sure to run mythtv-setup before restarting the backend.

 o It will be a good idea to run a mythfrontend process on your backened, 
before doing so from any other machine. In the upgrade process, when it 
computes the hash or whatever it does, it seems to took over twice as long 
when I did a test upgrade from a networked frontend.

 o Put in the major changes section "'I' and 'M' are swapped." Because I 
followed all the discussions, and STILL was messed up when I tried to bring 
up a menu. :-)
