Depending on the "seriousness" of your environment you can read the
changelogs and upgrade if you don't see any showstoppers. I have
hardly ever seen any problems with minor version upgrades of mysql.
Of course what Rob says is true, and it is a good idea to test things
out in a test environment first. But I know many environment where it
is "okay" to just run the upgrade, as long as it is a minor version
upgrade. I guess it depends on the type of production environment you
are running in.
be careful though!
