The Gramps 4.0.3 in the Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) repositories uses Python2
and there is no change of bsddb version. It is still a good idea to use
Gramps to make a Gramps XML backup before the upgrade though.
The Gramps 4.0.3 from the Gramps Sourceforge site (stable) is also
python 2 I think. But back up anyway!
There are Python 3 versions of Gramps available in the Unstable section
of the Sourceforge website. These will use the new bsddb3, and it is
probably not a good idea to use real data with them yet.
