[Mailman-Users] Upgrade to 2.1.6?

I'm currently running about a dozen lists using Mailman 2.1.4, which 
came pre-installed on my Apple XServe with Panther OS 10.3.9. I see 
this list and other lists are using 2.1.6, but I couldn't find 
information on the Mailman site about what the changes are, or how or 
if I should upgrade. My lists under 2.1.4 are running great -- am I 
missing anything significant under 2.1.6? The only problem or bug 
I've found with 2.1.4 is creating a new list via the Web interface -- 
I always get an error. But it works fine when creating the list from 
the XServe's OSX Server Admin application, so I create lists with 
that and then "polish" them with the Web interface, which then works 
perfectly fine.

Is there a tutorial somewhere about how to upgrade? I'm not a Unix 
geek and avoid using command line stuff ... but I learn quickly if 
there are good tutorials for beginners to follow. Same with scripting 
-- I see numerous mentions of scripts to add functionality to 
Mailman, but I don't understand how to use or access them -- can 
someone point me in the right direction? The other important issue 
I've got to tackle very soon is backing up my lists.
