RE: Upgrading to SpamAssassin 3.3

I do have a test VM so I thought I would go ahead and try out 3.3.0 for now. I ran into a bit of an issue with the NetAddr::IP module. I've installed it but when I try to install the built RPM file it gives me this error:

error: Failed dependencies:
        perl(NetAddr::IP) >= 4.000 is needed by perl-Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.0-1.i386

[root@Mailgate i386]# perl -le 'use NetAddr::IP; print NetAddr::IP->VERSION'

I've searched google and it seems that I'm not the first to have this problem but I can't seem to find a solution. Have any of you run into this problem?

3.3.0 works fine on CentOS 5.4, but 3.3.1 is due out imminently (in the next week or two), so I'd hold back for that.

Read the release notes carefully and ensure that 3.3.x's prerequisites are installed.

If you have a test VM you can install on, use it. I tested on a CentOS
5.4 VM on my home PC :-)

Updating was plain sailing for me.

The server is currently in production so I'm a bit leery to upgrade. Do you feel that it is worth the upgrade to 3.3? Is there anything I should know before I go ahead and upgrade? Thanks for your help
