Usually, but you should always read the NEWS file for information about
other things you may have to do.  It's also a good idea to run ``cvs
init'' on your repository after upgrading to create any new
administrative files (it will carefully preserve your existing ones) and
make any other necessary changes to your repository should there be any
in the future (there have never been any so far).  It's also a good idea
to upgrade the client executables, if any, but it isn't necessary.
