Default New version soon? Safe to install current?

Is it advisable for a relatively FreeBSD n00b like myself to install the Nvidia-drivers? Have done the same procedure in linux, but is concerned about the stability with Nvidia-drivers on FreeBSD. Using 4.8-RELEASE.

Just the regular upgrading-phantom that has possessed me, I guess . Would you not advice me to do so? I'm not a gamer, so perhaps not bother?

There should be a new FreeBSD driver version soon - it might be best for you to hold off.

Thank you, will do just that

I nearly upgraded, but found that it needed a helluva lot linux-specific stuff (lots of rpm's being downloaded) so I just aborted the install deciding to stay with a relatively clean system

Will this change in the next version? And what do you mean by soon? In next week or so or in two months? Educated guesses are just fine by me.
