I've just upgraded at work to 2.1.101 and it seems fine there. The "rusting"
seems much better (the machine used to become slower over time -
particularly my machine at home which only has 32MB). 

SMP still needs ironing out and you will need to upgrade several programs
(pppd being one).

If you don't want to read the kernel mailing list, then it's sensible to
wait a little while after a release and check slashdot.org and freshmeat for
any problems.

PS: Kernel development being what it is, has released 2.1.102, there are
some problems with it (menuconfig is broken somewhere).
