I have used EL in the past (2.0) and I remember it being a real pain to install and deploy. Has it gotten any better and is it worth the effort?

I am currently running SQL CE3.5 SP1 and have a lot of problems with crashes, access violation exceptions, strange lock errors etc. Is it possible that upgrading to SP2 might help at all with stability, or does it only add new features, not any bug fixes?
This post comes as a result of a discussion related to this post in the Database Design forum:

In a previous thread "Is WPF dead or going to be"
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wpf/thread/7edc8165-e1a6-4451-ac9c-f112d1d17957 JamiePattison asked, "if its worth learning WPF in case its not used in future". The thread primarily discussed life, death and uncertainty. I am
starting this new thread because its focus is quite different. My questions is quite simply: Is it worth committing business resources to developing a new project in WPF?
Since this is the WPF forum, I would expect a lot of support for WPF; I welcome that support. While there are rumors than MS is planning to drop WPF, as far as I can tell they are only rumors and should not be of immediate concern. I am not interested
