Default MythTV and VDPAU. 0.22, worth upgrade from JYA 0.21?

The title pretty much says it all. I am currently using JYA's 0.21 patches with VDPAU (180.51 driver) and it works well. MythTV 0.22 is finally released, and I believe it has all the same VDPAU goodness that JYA so kindly backported to 0.21. Is it worth upgrading to 0.22 (yet)? Pros and Cons?

Thanks.

I can't say anything about the MythTV, but I do recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of the drivers. There have been great improvements in VDPAU since 180.51.

I have just switched to 0.22, it is recommended if you want to remain in sync with jya repositories. In my case all went well. Before starting, be sure that you database is ok and make a backup using the latest backup scripts, as explained here:

I recommend to use latest 195.22 drivers. (You can use them without passing to 0.22, just avoid to upgrade mythtv - related packages).

I have gone to 0.22 about a month ago. Pretty smooth upgrade but if you have a good stable running 0.21 with vdpau backports, its not worth the upgrade IMO.
