Everything went smoothly for me. No problems after the upgrade, although I am looking forward to not having the sporadic drag-and-drop problem that happened to me a couple of times before. Otherwise, I haven't really noticed a difference. Perhaps I need to take more advantage of some of the features for which this upgrade was targeted.

Stuff I've noticed improved: Mail.app, SMB browsing services. General system responsiveness, which may be due to the long 'optimizing' part of the install process and will fade over time.
Stuff degraded: XDarwin, but there's an update out to XFree86 that I need to apply.
Some days I get the feeling I must just be real lucky. :D

Has anyone enabled the new Journaling feature?

You say you notice improvements in Mail.app. Could you be more specific as to what those improvements are?

Mail? Performance mostly; fewer pinwheels lasting for shorter periods of time. I have a 250 MB mail collection and sometimes Mail would just go off into the weeds indexing, changing message colors, or something and the program would seem to freeze for long periods of time.
So far, knock on wood, it seems better, as if the threading is improved.

Overall snappier performance, but I re-worked my set-up which gave the benefits of more space on the Jaguar volume with no fragmentation. That would help any OS. :) The optimization helped, too, no doubt.
Amazing that there are still no negative votes after 46 entries. That wasn't the case for any other update that I recall.

No real changes here as far as I can tell. But I just got broadband finally and that makes the entire experience seem seem better anyway!

Hi, I just clean installed Jaguar on my G4 iMac, and applied the combo update the next day. Everything went smoothly and the update installed and optimised quickly. However I just wanted to point out some advice I found on the Version Tracker reviews, run repair permissions before you install the update. I was shocked when I saw how many permissions needed repair, especially since Jaguar was less than 24 hours old on my machine (clean install) and I hadn`t even started to re-install my apps yet! Hope that tip avoids some unecessary problems for everyone-I suppose its just common sense really.
