I just tested this, and it works perfectly the upgrade was so smooth. 
So far kde 4.3 is a great improvement, it does have some bugs and 
annoyances but is expected from a beta. Still kde 4.3 fixes a whole 
lot of bugs and annoyances introduced in kde4 since the beginning. 
Also it feels more polished and professional.
