Well, that's a matter of taste ;) 

I'm sure, these changes will find their way into the next release
anyways. But there are some changes in the private API of Pd which
some externals nevertheless use. For example, my knob externals
doesn't work with Pd-0.37 yet. Still I do prefer 0.37 now, especially
with Jack, where after doing the two changes, 0.37 works much better
here than ever before. I always had problems with graphics intensive
patches and Jack, and while they aren't gone (they are planned to go
away with 0.38) they don't lead to a Jack crash or Pd hang anymore,
they just produce some clicks.
