My recommendation is that you look into using GsDevKit_home[1]. With 
GsDevKit_home, there is a $GS_HOME/bin/upgradeStone script that pretty 
much automates the upgrade process and I've got an update to 
GsDevKit_home in the pipeline which will include a bit more 
documentation on the upgrade process.

What type of GemStone application are you using, GLASS, Seaside, 
something else? Are you using GemTools for development?

It is possible to use GsDevKit_home to upgrade a GLASS environment for to a more recent version of GemStone ... If you are interested  
I can help you with the process ... at the moment I would recommend that 
you plan to upgrade to 3.3.0. If you were using GemStone 3.2.x I would 
recommend that you wait until 3.3.1, since the upgrade path to 3.3.1 
from 3.2.x is much simpler than an upgrade to 3.3.0 from 3.2.x...

To properly perform an upgrade from 2.4.x to 3.2.x or 3.3.x, you will 
want to first port your code base to the target version and make sure 
that all of your tests pass ... then you will need to update your 
configuration/baseline to include the new code for 3.x ... then you are 
ready to go through the ugpgrade process.

With GsDevKit_home you will start using tODE[2] as your development 
environment and it is probably worth taking a look at some of the slides 
and presentation videos that I've made over the last few years[3] to get 
a flavor of tODE.
