Upgrading To WordPress 2.9

The new features of WordPress 2.9 is really tempting me to upgrade techdreams. But before I upgrade I want to make sure that existing theme and supporting plugins are compatible with the new version. So upgraded goodtimes(which uses techdreams theme and plugins) to make sure that everything is going to be smooth. As WordPress promises, the upgrade to 2.9 was very smooth. Tomorrow I'm going to upgrade techdreams to 2.9. What about you? When will you upgrade.
