You do not need a clean install, its a delta update.

Don't you mean is an update ok? or should i do a clean install? Just update. I just updated over ML and its been working fine so updating to DP2 shouldn't be a problem.

For people who want to know, Wave is now first wallpaper choice in System preferences, also activity monitor doesn't bug like it did previously.

I think most of the changes went to driver updates and under the hood tuning.

The full OS is 4.6GB. 1.4GB is delta!

And no, there shouldn't be any plist issues.

I like that Notification Center had a banner that alerted me to three options once downloaded:

Restarting in (1 min countdown)
Restart in 1 hour
Remind me tomorrow

Well, to us developers what happens in the background is more important what happens in the surface. Mavvy is still far from being ready so don't lose your hope. Who knows, maybe we get new dock after few updates.
