Considering we are on v2.4.5, I would say "Yes, go ahead and update"
No, if you do find that something has snuck into the commit chain and causes potential harm, you can always post this within the Bugs category and we can fix it as soon as possible. When bugs are found, none of these are of the breaking variety and are usually adjusted and pushed to the public channels within the hour of the find.
We have a private development channel for the developers and beta squad for this very reason and usually find any such subjects before they are publicly released.
With all this said and out of the way. There is now an update history widget that is displayed directly on the dashboard. This can be visualized and updates can be preformed on a rolling commit basis... no real need to wait on version to version.
