I did a simple upgrade and did not have any of Bruno's problems: 
archive and install seems to cause more trouble than it's worth. In my 
experience the move to 10.2.1 was well worth it; though I 
simultaneously upgraded TeTeX and TeXShop---no problems since then with

These worked before and they work since. I haven't noticed myself any 
slow up with syntax colouring.

But the real improvements are in the Quartz PDF display engine for 
postscript. Word, for example, now works, in a way that it patently 
didn't before (obviously the fault was with Apple rather than 
MS---surprise!) and I suspect that everything that uses postscript 
fonts has been smoothed out a little (i.e. Illustrator, Omnigraffle, 
etc.) So if these apps are important in your work flow---and they are 
in mine, since I write in TeX but must give journals articles that are 
in Word format, these changes make 10.2.1 a must-have upgrade.
