I'd suggest posting this on snort-users, not snort-sigs.... snort-sigs is a 
mailing list for signature development.

That said, upgrading should consist of:
         1) back up your snort.conf
         2) download, unpack the snort tarball from snort.org
         3) give the doc/README and doc/NEWS files a quick skim. (There's 
nothing new in them in this release, but always a good idea to check)
         4) compile and install the snort tarball (see the doc/INSTALL file)
         5) merge your HOME_NET variables, etc from your old snort.conf 
into the new snort.conf.
