some packages may work and some not. from our point of view it's safer to say rebuilt everything when major porteus version comes out.

"Would you expect major diffs between rc and final - under the hood, I mean?"
rather not but i definitely have to bump ffmpeg to match version from slackbuilds.org (1.2.4 -> 2.x) and this may break some multimedia apps.
just in case - please wait till rc2 when package versions will be frozen.
