5.4 Upgrade Yes/No?

After Geoffrey's post I thought I would ask all of you if anyone is planning on upgrading to the 5.4.0 release of TSM. When I was with IBM we tended to wait til the first point release, so I am wondering if anyone is really going to upgrade at this point? Also for those playing with the new release, did they improve the ISC or is it still a mess?

New feature to Tivoli Storage Manager 5.4? (ANR1183I / ANR1182I)

Was playing around with iTSM 5.4 EE on Linux this morning and it appears they have (finally) updated the restore algorithm to list every volume required to complete a restoration.

As usual the information is stashed away in the activity log and is displayed after the inital query is sent to the server - before tapes are mounted.
