Yes, and my Xubuntu iBook updated smoothly from Dapper versions of
packages to Edgy, in pretty much exactly the fashion expected.  Just a
data point.

When I read various online cries of distress at the time of Edgy's
release, I couldn't help suspecting Ubuntu's becoming a victim of its
own success, in the sense of attracting hapless people who unthinkingly
do risky or problematic things (like using third-party package sources)
but expect magical self-correction from the OS.  I'd be thunderstruck if
there _weren't_ quality control problems at the same time, of course:
That release schedule has to be pretty grueling, not to mention the
burgeoning technical support burden.
