I'm considering installing the 2.5 Beta on my site in a 'beta' folder for further testing, alongside the current 2.3.3 install. (so if 2.3.3 is under "blog" then 2.5 would be installed under "blog-beta" to keep it separate). They'd be running off of the same wordpress database and would use the same folder for uploads to keep images in sync.
Does WordPress 2.5 change the database structure?
Will it break 2.3.3?
Should I wait for 2.5 final?
Am I begging for pain?
