upgrades (the one using apt) was after hamm was frozen, none were with
either the beta or final release.

Judging from some of the messages I have seen, not everyone has been this
successful, however.  I don't have enough data to speculate on the

Upgrading from rex to bo or from hamm to slink was much easier, since the
libc5 to libc6 transition has been the biggest obstacle here.
