Is this update worth it?
I personally have been started using it beta for last few days. It does feel snappier and battery life do get some boost. But the bad news is it still based on Kitkat for few of the devices like Mi 3. Hence using Kitkat again sucks. All the new feature you have been accustomed to in Lollipop eg. deleting email right from notification is missing. I will soon will back on Slim Custom ROM for Mi 3.

For rest of you try out the new beta and let me know your opinion.
