V4 Upgrade Experience

I finally got around to upgrading from V3 last Saturday. I've been
waiting until the dust settled before I did the deed. BTW, I'm running a
Redhat 7.3 server with RH's sendmail/perl, and the latest version of
spamassassin. V3 was working without problems before starting.
After noticing that Julian had released a new version I grabbed it,
untar'd the file, and ran the ./install script. It happily reported that
most of the required perl files were already installed, updated a few, and
added a couple of others. I modified the new mailscanner.conf file, added
the MailScanner service per the doc's and, as I had the luxury, rebooted
the server. I know the reboot wasn't necessary if I had shutdown the old
deamons but I also wanted to be sure that the server would come back in
case of power outages etc. Everything came up running without errors!
I've only noticed a couple of minor things that needed tweaking. Small
stuff like the f-prot-autoupdate script location had to be changed in my
crontab file (it was still pointing to the old location).
The bottom line is that this was a totally painless upgrade. Thank you
