 This depends on your OS and version.  If you have

 if they're available yet.  (I'm not using RH.))

It's not, yet. Nor are new snapshots available, yet.

 Other than this, you should be fine to upgrade.  I in fact discovered a
 simpler way than has been described before.  Try this:

 cd ~/evolution/local/Contacts/
 cp addressbook.db addressbook.db.backup
 db_upgrade addressbook.db

db_upgrade is provided (according to by the db3-utils
package. When I try to install that package, it tells me that it
conflicts with files from glibc (I have glibc 2.1.3-16. the default that
comes with Mandrake 7.2). I haven't upgraded glibc, because I'm leery of
touching anything so immensely vital to ... well, everything  :-).

Do I really need to upgrade glibc, which every program needs, in order
to see my contacts?

How about downloading and compiling the source for db3-utils? I have 
found that in many cases, some newer RPM packages demand glibc2.2, 
but the source compiles against glibc2.1 just fine. Of course, your 
rpm database gets out of whack then.

Ah, it looks like db_upgrade is new to db3.  If you're not on RH7,
you'll probably have to use the old method (cp addressbook.db
addressbook.db.bkup ; db_dump185 addressbook.db.bkup | db_load
addressbook.db).  This should be fixed soon.  I expect future versions
of evolution to automatically upgrade if necessary.
