Yes. We were truly thankful that we did not wait on our purchase of the "early" 2016 model in July.
There are always compromises to be made. Some will be thrilled with the new, presumably a bit larger bathroom/shower and the hard side shower door. And tor that they will accept (or maybe they like) the new wardrobe arrangement. Others must like the idea of more storage with the new, added pantry and the repositioning of the entertainment center. (We preferred having the front bunk wide open as it is the "open" feeling that drew us to a HTT in the first place. Some will hardly notice the repositioning of the microwave and the cabinet which I presume allowed for the stove hood to be positioned higher and thereby allowing larger pots on the stove? (Irrelevant to us but maybe important to others.)
As it is, we like our IKSS just the way it is. The only think I wish was different would be a larger window on the kitchen side (we could do with a lot less or even no entertainment center) and a clear (not frosted) door window so that we, again, would be able to see outside. But aside from that the minor issues like the sharp edge along the bed shelf and the less than ideal mattresses are "fixable."
Neither the new IKSS or the 23WS would have been the ticket for us. (My wife couldn't care less about a "changing area" and, for us, that door would just get in the way.
