Updated addon dictionaries worthwhile?

If I update to the new versions of CEDICT and Adsotrans, then my flashcards will have invalid entries. So, I wonder whether it is worthwhile to upgrade and have to deal with 2 versions of the same dictionary. What exactly are the differences between the old version and the new version. Also, will a future version of Plecodict (2.0?) make this upgrade more painless?

Best regards,

More words in CEDICT, more refined definitions in Adso. Also, the Adso database now has traditional characters. As far as whether it's worth the upgrade, I probably wouldn't bother - a bunch of people (including CEDICT's current editor) have sent e-mails asking us to update the databases, so we did, but if you're happy with the current ones I don't know that you'll see that much improvement in the new versions.

And yes, we're planning to make this process nearly seamless in 2.0, along with releasing more frequent database updates.
