Some parameters/configurations/functionalities might
change/appear/disappear, depending on the type of
development (some projects are stable and other projects just
do not care about backward compatibility).
If you do manual updates, you will notice that some configuration
files may change in the process (see the .rpmnew and .rpmsave)...
If your server is critical, you'd better test the updates on a non
critical server before.
