Yes, and btw, in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf, make sure to change

Driver      "keyboard"


Driver      "kbd"

This was the only problem I had with upgrading, which isn't in UPDATING, 
but I found it on Google pretty easily. If this isn't changed xorg 
won't start. Other than that it upgraded without any problems.
