I've been using R-2.12 since day 0 and don't have any issues to report.

I've also stopped using R from the GUI for a long time now (I only run
it via the terminal, or through emacs/terminal), so if there are
problems with using that for an extended period of time, I wouldn't
know (I'm guessing there aren't, though).

Keep in mind that you can keep R-2.11 on your machine *and* install
R-2.12. If for some reason you think R-2.12 isn't stable enough for
you, you can switch back to R-2.11 with Rswitch, which you can find
