We've been using Eclipse since 1.0, and have upgraded many times. I've found that my coworkers usually had problems with upgrading when they did so infrequently, such as 2.0 -> 2.1 M5. When I kept current with the milestones and releases, upgrading went smoothly. For that matter, whenever I rolled back to a previous version because of instabilities with the build, that went smoothly, too. In other words, try upgrading incrementally to avoid compatibility problems.
