How do I upgrade from 0.5 to 0.8?

I'm sure that data migrations are now built into Orchard and these should let me update from 0.5 to 0.8. However, now that I've tried to update, I realise I don't know how to.

I've tried running the 0.8 version with the app data folder from my 0.5 version, but it complains: 'ClaySharp.Clay' does not contain a definition for 'Add'.

I think I must be missing something really obvious. Am I?

No, and it's actually called out in the release notes: there is currently no upgrade path from 0.5.

I've now read the release notes right to the bottom and am much better informed. I'll try the BlogML module to see if that gets me part of the way there. Will there be an upgrade path between 0.8 and 1.

Unfortunately we don't know yet.

I don't see a BlogML modules for 0.8. It's easy enough to export from 0.5, but how would I then import into 0.8?

Nick hasn't uploaded it to the 0.8 feed yet.
