ORDB is good. Very few problems with them.

Just upgrade. If you are using the RPM distribution, then you only need to
upgrade the actual mailscanner*rpm file, you don't need to re-run Be warned that you will need to check your configuration file
carefully. In particular, definitely look out for
         PID File (new)
         PID Dir (old and removed)
         Language Strings (new)
They are the 3 most important changes in there, and it will object if they
aren't right.
