The automatic upgrade feature in newer versions of WordPress software makes upgrading far easier than just a few version ago. I remember putting off the chore for months not wanted to hassle with backups and FTP uploads. Currently the step by step ‘semi-wizard’ approach works well and the switch to WordPress 2.8 last evening the same. I really appreciated the backup approach to databases before implementing the upgrade. After the 5 to 10 minute of clicking and reading explanations the chore was done.
As for major changes, I haven’t noticed them yet, but then again who reallywants a complete redesign???
