Cisco PIX 6.3 to 7.0 Upgrade.

I am looking to do the upgrade from PIX 6.3 to PIX 7.0 on my production firewalls.  Can anyone tell me if there are any contingencies that I should be concerned with.

Actually, as long as you are not using conduits it is a very painless and quick event to upgrade.
I've probably done 10-12 of them with zero issues.
The latest 7.21 and the ASDM that goes with it is awesome. The GUI just keeps getting better.
With so many new features, it is well worth the upgrade.
The VPN config is totally different, and all fixups are gone and there is zero support for PPTP clients (no more vpdn group)
Use the Wizards to do your VPN's for both client and site-site
You can turn on/turn off access-list entries with a simple check-box - check/un-check to enable/disable any single entry without removing the entry entirely. Set time-based acl restrictions (really cool)
The live logging right on the home page of the ASDM is extremely useful
