[OS X TeX] Questions about updating

I last updated my full LaTex/TeX distribution in early 2008. Engine
files such as latexmk.engine are dated 10/07. I have since followed up
by updating TeXShop regularly; I use version 2.25.
My current installation seems to work fine. But I've been reading on
the list that there have been significant changes in the more recent
distributions. So I'm wondering if it is time to bite the bullet and
update the full distribution.
I regularly read the list and have seen a fair amount of traffic
relating post-update problems, so I have been hesitant to update lest
I break something.
Although many helpful posts have been published addressing various
installation/update issues, I haven't seen one comprehensive post
that: (1) recommends updating, and (2) identifies potential pitfalls
with the update.
If I were to update, I would prefer to keep my current distribution in
its current state for a while until I am sure that the new
distribution is working for me.
I will appreciate (and hopefully others do also) if the experts out
there can provide recommendations and suggestions about updating.
I use a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.5.7.
Thanks in advance.
