Default questions about upgrading pearl

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,
I am new to blackberry so am hoping for a little guidance here.
I want to be safe and not do anything that will cause me any stability problems with my Pearl.

On a thread here, I was pointed to what appears to be a new 'official software upgrade from blackberry ( listed below from the blackberry site ).

I'm not sure I understand what all the numbers mean, as I don't see a hundred percent direct corelation between the stated info and what I see in my "about' screen, so I'll post that after the official info.

My questions are:
Is this upgrade to BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.1.102 (Multilanguage), something I want to do ?

Is it safe and recommended to do OTA or should I wait until I get home and do it with the sync ?

Here is what's pointed to on the thread ( at the blackberry site ) I assume I am only interested in the TOP ONE.
