Not really, since such an upgrade should border on the trivial.  But in the special case where
no releases for a major level have reached the stable stage, there's a somewhat larger chance
of incompatible changes being introduced in a dot level.  Once a stable version is released,
the chance of that is practically nil, unless some security-related fix dictates otherwise.

Pretty much.  Safest to install in a different directory than your current Tomcat one so you
have a quick fallback if something goes awry.  You will have to update conf/*.xml files with
any site-specific changes, and insure that your startup scripts and/or services know about
the new location.
