I've got 1.9.5 RC1 installed, integrated with our pre-existing membership provider, and a somewhat customized theme. Given that, is it worth the effort to upgrade to 1.9.5 release, or should I just stand pat. I'm not currently having any issues with my RC1 instance, that I'm aware of anyway.
Thanks for any advice on this!
Since you are ok (or think you are ok) with 195rc1, i would suggest to wait for 188.8.131.52 release.
