There are -- but unfortunately there's no magic wand :-( You really
do have to read the changelogs and determine what matters to you. You
already said you use stored procedures and functions, and a lot of the
bug fixes involve those. The more complex your usage, the more work
upgrades are. I would suggest using the mk-upgrade tool from Maatkit
to help ferret out issues.
