MailScanner 4.70 and latest raft of CentOS5 updates?

I'm running CentOS release 5.2 (Final), but I have *not* upgraded mysql
or the perl packages as shown below.  This box is a basic MailScanner
server without the GUI.

# uname -a
Linux 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5 #1 SMP Wed Jun 25 13:49:24 EDT
2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Everything is running fine for the last couple of days.

Here's the output of my system after I removed ALL the excludes from
the yum.conf file.

# yum update

As subject, there's a major bunch of updates been released for CentOS

I know nothing is concrete, but has anyone here taken the plunge and
you know if there there any known/major issues between these, and
MailScanner 4.70?

Thanks in advance.
