You can check out the sourceforge versions here:
Starting with 2.2.5 we moved to Savannah:
Comparing the database definition file (koha.sql) in version 1.2.3 to
2.0 and then 2.2 you will see several changes of critical importance to
having a stable 2.2.7 system up and running.

It changed from 1.2.3 to 2.0.1, and then again in 2.2.0. Only minor
changes since 2.2.0. AFAIK, updatedatabse should catch all of them.
Of course, make sure to back up your db, etc. ;-).
I hope that helps.
