Should you update? Yes.
I'm aware that 2.1 was uploaded just three days ago, but there is a reason why I'm pushing this update in advance to the usual schedule (weekend). This release fixes two big bugs happening at deep night (you may have encountered already or maybe not, but they are there in 2.1) and also significantly improves some night scenarios involving the moon which should appear in these days depending on the season (if you do not see a moon but you see a brighter sky/clouds,...
