Thanks for the feedback Ted.
I am using almost exclusively FLAC files on my slug, so there is some transcoding involved, but I would hope that is sorted out at this point.
One of my greatest concerns is actually whether I will break something during the upgrade, and the possible downtime this would cause while I try to get it sorted.
I suspect I am being too cautious, but I thought it would be prudent to ask before committing myself.
Perhaps someone can also advise whether the upgrade to svn 1498 can be accomplished in a single step, or is there a requirement to install any of the intermediate svn’s?
