WordPress 2 any good?

I noticed that Merlin has been working on upgrading the 43f site to Word Press 2. I've been holding off on the upgrade for my site until I hear that version 2 is really stable etc, or at least see a 2.1 release.

Has anyone tried WP 2? Merlin, if you're reading this, how has your changeover experience been?

Steve Smith also released an upgrade to his sweet TigerAdmin plugin (which overrides the awful default Admin UI):
