Upgrade the database every time you upgrade the version of OpenERP.

Between major releases, this is done via a command-line argument to the openerp-server process.

openerp-server -d DB_NAME -u all

Thank you for your answer.

What exactly is the difference between these versions?

each version contains new functions or just improving and bug fixes ?


Just bug fixes. Very occasionally there is new functionality, but more often this is in the period soon after the main release. Since the upgrade process is supported automatically, there cannot be major changes.
