After running the WordPress stats plugin for many years, I've decided to upgrade to JetPack. The installation went smoothly, I connected and authorized my blog with Wordpress.com, and I'm seeing stats.

Is it safe to deactivate and delete my old WordPress stats plugin now? Or do I need to keep it in order to preserve my historical data?

I'm a bit shocked that WordPress hasn't provided a step-by-step upgrade guide for this.
