Any word on it?

I used it once to upgrade a system and it worked fine. However, to make
it work I had to remove almost everything from /boot because the default
size of 200Mb is too small to work with preupgrade. If your /boot is
200Mb I would suggest upgrading via dvd rather than preupgrade.

Right, that's been a sort of painful transition, which is one reason
why preupgrade isn't as "official" as it should someday be.

Now Fedora by default installs a 500 MB /boot, which should be
sufficient for the foreseeable future. (Admittedly in free software,
things change rapidly so the horizon of "foreseeable" isn't as long as
you might find in crustier realms.) ;-)
