In general there should be no extra manual steps required for the
upgrade. Simply stop the repository, make a full backup (as per
standard procedure), update the Jackrabbit jars (and relevant
dependencies), and start the repository.

Jackrabbit should be fully compatible with old repository data and we
have a set of integration tests to verify this for a number of
configurations, so I wouldn't expect any problems. If something comes
up (like the index update reqiurement mentioned by Marek), please file
a bug report about the issue.

There should be no need to rebuild the search index unless you want to
take advantage of some of the index format optimizations in the more
recent Lucene version.
