Yes you can upgrade - have a detailed recovery plan in case it goes wrong which should include backups and a maintenance window when you can take the databases down.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
