I wonder if 8.04 fixes the two bugs I hit with 7.10:
- cryptdisks at boot time won't work if you have /usr on a seperate partition (/usr/lib eventually) - there's a workaround to copy some file from /usr/lib to /lib but updates make you run outdated versions of it.
- no scripts for apache ssl certificates

Besides having to care for these, I'd might go for an upgrade a month or two after it's ready.
