Take a look at "readme-tlc2.html" for a list of updated packages. I'd
suggest that if you decide to use any of these updated packages you should
first put them in your local texmf tree (i.e., ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/)
and test them out. E.g., I've discovered that the updated fourier package
(at least with the expert utopia fonts but probably in all cases) requires a
change if you use the updated textcomp package. Also, since the new textcomp
package tries to be smart about adjusting for fonts it knows about you've
got to make sure you add the package after using the font package if it has
any extended glyphs.

Good Luck,
