2014R2

I see that is out in eval. I am going to try this on my test servers.
Is this considered an upgrade similar to a 2012 -> 2014 upgrade, or
more like a service pack type upgrade?

More specifically, after doing the install, does one need to go through
the configuration too?

So my response to Stevo's comment is...

Ok so it's as easy as any other GW upgrade. The configuration step
during the install basically tells you to use the web interface to
upgrade the mta & poa databases, etc.

Took all of 20 minutes to do my 2 test mta's, 2 test poa's, gwia,
calendar publishing and webaccess.

Yes - but to be clear for others, this is indeed an "Upgrade" and not just a patch, so you should be sure you wish to do it, because there is no "going back" to a 2014 patch level if you decide you really didn't want to do it.
