Yes, go ahead!

This depends on the last time you updated. I assume you have configured 
your server to use the development version of the LON-CAPA 
prerequisites. Execute "yum update" (or whatever is needed on your 
machine) to update all packages. A manual install should not be necessary.

The header will slightly change (enhanced floating). There are only 
known some minor issues which are not really worth mentioning.

Please file a bug for everything what you find dysfunctional. There is 
"Product: LON-CAPA 3.0 Redesign" in bugzilla.
