My experience with Debian . Freeze the release, test it for as long as 
it takes..which includes  finding the clean upgrade path, if possible, 
and writing the release notes, read the release  notes :-)
There are lots of upgrade  tools as others have indicated, which ones 
and in what sequence are revealed through thorough testing.

One good point: there may not be a clean upgrade path for TDE 14 since 
all the naming changes have happened...I have not upgraded an install 
yet.  I intend to have a local mirror of R14 which will make clean 
installs or upgrades easy and fast.

One comment on clean installs, the home directory stays the same which 
includes all the user/application  settings and info.
