Personally, I recently upgraded from 0.24 to 0.26 and I wish I'd stayed on 0.24. Some of the issues I'm having might be kernel related (I upgraded my entire distribution at the same time) but my new setup just doesn't seem to work as well as 0.24 did for me, in particular I'm having sync and performance issues with videos that played perfectly in 0.24. I'm actually considering at the moment just biting the bullet and reinstalling the previous distro.
