New Stable Release, Clamd and Postfix?

My MailScanner box runs quite nicely running the previous stable version

I'm suffering from the slow clamscan performance issue, and noticed the
new stable release supports clamd (which I'm running).

Having looked at the manual it appears it should simply be a case of run
the installer script, then use upgrade_MailScanner_conf to update
MailScanner.conf with the new settings.

Not having ever upgraded MailScanner before, I'd sooner ask the question
than get caught out - is this all there is to it (barring something
totally unforeseen happening)?

Also as I run Postfix I have my MailScanner set to run as user "postfix"
as per the docs.  Will this cause me a problem (or can someone point me
where to go to RTFM?)
