If you install a new version of Elements on the same computer, the installation process will prompt you to 'convert' the current catalog of the older version.
That will create a new catalog (with the same name) in the new format. The old catalog will be renamed with a -1 suffix and still be available to the older Elements version.
If you don't accept this prompt, you can always use the catalog manager to convert when you want, and to convert other catalogs.
Note that even if you can work in either elements version, what you do in a catalog is ignored by the other (no sync).
