deactivate 3.1.4 before upgrading.
then, delete the 3.1.4 folder

Then copy in the 3.2dev stuff

and then re-activate.


OK now I've learned a bit of caution ;-) ...

I see the plugins page has 2 stages of "getting rid of the old one".

First I can "deactivate", then I can "delete" in a separate option.

Of course what I'd like is to delete everything in the control panel  
data structures...  and everything on the disc.

EXCEPT !!! not lose my database entries.

Is there a risk of that if I do anything here?

Is "delete" here in the Plugins page all I need... or do I have to go  
to the file system and delete the tree physically?

Can't be too careful, right?
