If this is a server (aka a production machine) don't upgrade to 2.4.0
yet, imho it is not ready.

It is still in heavy development and there still are quite a few small
details that will annoy the hell out of some ppl :)

If it's working and stable with 2.2.17 i would not bother, unless you
want to experiment, don't fix something that isn't broken ;)

That is, imho...
