Snort Package Upgrade Ques ??

  • I'm new to Pfsense, i still learning how to use it but through tutorials and documentation i have been able to setup Pfsense with Snort and a few other packages and it has been running good so far.
    I need some feedback as it relates to installing Snort Package Updates, i have been running Snort on Pfsense 2 for quite a while now but i just notice there is a new version is available (Snort 2.9.1).
    How do i go about moving to this new version and is it safe ?
    If i move to this new version will i loose my Snort settings or break Pfsense?
    Has anyone upgraded to this new version yet ?
    How quick should a move to new versions of snort when they are available ?
