That info looks like it's particular to WebSphere / Eclipse users, not in 
general AFAICT.

There was a change of installer technology--assuming you're running on 
Windows, and the previous version was installed with the EXE installer, you 
should uninstall first then install the new version.  Tony changed from 
InstallShield to InnoSetup in the early 2.0.x timeframe, IIRC.

Make sure as good practice that you backup your repositories before 
upgrading, but I'm not aware of any problems with that.
