Planning to upgrade

Last night I finally got around to downloading the latest version of Movable Type. I'm hoping to do the upgrade in the next few days, Copious Spare Time permitting. I've got a couple of questions for those of you who have already taken the plunge:

1. Any gotchas I need to worry about?

2. Is the new dynamic page rebuilding thing worth it?

3. Besides the new MT Blacklist, which (if any) of the plugins are you using?

4. Anything else I should be aware of?

I'm using 3.0D right now, not the actual newest version but close enough, and have used 3.11. It works pretty well. I don't really know about the Dynamic thing...

Blacklist works a lot better now. It takes a little getting used to, but there are some major advantages, led by having a built-in blocker for old messages.

The one thing that really caused me problems was that in one of my installations (the one that is, unfortunately, no longer accessible) was getting the menu's CSS and images to load. It worked in the main MT menu, but not in blacklist, and I could never figure out why. If you don't use cgi-bin for your installation, it won't matter.
