Over 80% of new blocks are now Version 2. Once this hits 95% any version 1 block you mine will be rejected by the network.
An upgrade to 0.7 is necessary (or 0.8.1 when available).
Yesterday, core dev and btc guild rescued miners on an old version, but it won't happen for version 1 miners when they are churning out orphans with unspendable rewards.

Don't be among the last few heading for the exit on version 1 getting guaranteed down-time.

The percentage at the bottom of this screen is moving centre-stage in the Bitcoin show now:

Deepbit is JUST under 5% of the network.  With a little luck, they alone could prevent the supermajority.

I see DB upgrading their bitcoind at last, so I doubt they will be holding people back, even with people running unattended ancient versions of mining software (still find it funny people mine at one pool without a single backup even now...).

Good news. It seems that more people on v0.7 at the moment the better!

At what point will pools move onto a newer version? 0.8.1 is supposed to fix these issues, right?

Indeed, many pools moving back to 0.7 was a terrible blow for the progress all the devs have been working hard to achieve.
