I've never had a bit of trouble with it on my laptop and I've never had 
fedup work properly on my desktop.  Go know.  I'm going to have to 
upgrade the desktop before F19 expires, and I'm considering trying the 
unofficial fedora-upgrade tool and see if it works better.  (I've always 
had fedup hang, leaving large numbers of duplicate packages and the 
system only working in CLI mode.  Generally speaking, it takes several 
days worth of manual cleanup before package-cleanup --cleandupes will 
work in a reasonable time frame.  Maybe yum-complete-transaction would 
be better.)  And, to answer your question, fedup is still the official 
upgrade tool.
