Once released, I think you should be able to upgrade your system to it, & get all the new bits.

A 'point release' in Debian simply means that they've updated the installation media to include all updates since the last point release (or original release). If you're doing a fresh install, this means less post-install updating to do. If you've been updating your system all along, you already have the point release. If you use the net install, it doesn't matter so much - at the end of the installation you have the latest updates of everything.
