Default 7.0 to 7.1 retaining app. preferences etc.

I've been fairly conservative and held off on the 7.0 to 7.1 update. Last night I burned the isos to disc, and intend to install from there.

I have a non-generic kernel - for ATAPI support

I also have a number of applications that I use with regularity -
wine & Neverwinter
FireFox and Opera
and various others

I'm using the NVidia driver.

Are there any pitfalls I should be wary of with this upgrade?
Also, I'm going to backup prior to the process, but will the upgrade clobber/overwrite my various conf files - in particular here I'm thinking about K3B which took a bit of configuration.
