Theres no official method, or unofficial method. If you want to upgrade to it, you'll probably have to work out how to yourself. :)

Technically you aren't supposed to ask for support. ;)

I dunno if the upgrade.php file works. See what happens. (Back db + files first)

What i was trying to say in my post, is that there currently is no way, and that if you want to update now, you'll have to do it manually. Alternatively, you could wait until the Release Canditate (BETA?) status is hit, where an upgrade script should be available. :)
