Will You Wait for WordPress 2.5.1?

As we get closer to the next version of WordPress being released, one of the things that keeps popping up in my mind is whether or not the first release will be stable and secure enough to use. Previous major releases have had their problems and like most desktop software, it can be better to wait for the point one release after a new version. Will WordPress 2.5 be the same?

I know many people who are going to wait a week or two to see what the opinion of the Support Forums seems to be, but will people wait long enough that WordPress 2.5.1 is released?

With all the new features and the design overhaul of the WordPress administration panel, will you be on the cutting edge and upgrade right away, wait a few days, or wait until WordPress 2.5.1?

Another group of people I want to mention are those that aren’t looking forward to upgrading at all because of the administration panel design changes. I wonder how many will cling to WordPress 2.3.3?

    I’m one of those who isn’t too keen on the new look of 2.5.

    but honestly, I’ll probably end up upgrading once all the plugins i use are updated.

    I’m going to wait a week or two because I don’t want to update twice if they find a bug or hole in the software. Besides that it’s not on the top of my list of things to do.

    I’ll wait until 2.5.1 unless it’s out for a good while, in which case I’ll go ahead and update.

    What I’m worried about is my theme mostly. I don’t have a lot of plugins so that would be a short fix for me. Guess I’ll install the new one locally after a bit and see how it goes.

    I have far too many very valuable plugins that absolutely must migrate to 2.5 before I even consider upgrading. Some of those plugins are not from big names or are very popular so I fear it may be a while before making the move.
