Everything worked perfectly for me. No issues so far. I use custom theme, so I will need to modify it to support the new features of ghost 0.8.

I’ve successfully completed an in-place upgrade of a Ghost blog from 0.7.9 to 0.8.0. Looking at the release notes, the only braking changes seem to be in the theme API. So unless you’re using it to build out a custom theme, upgrading shouldn’t be an issue.

The team at Ghost wrote up a separate post about those theme API changes. To quote their summary:

  1. All partial files MUST use the .hbs file extension.
  2. Handlebars helpers provided to HTML attributes MUST be quoted, e.g. <div class="{{post_class}}">
  3. ../ in handlebars now behaves naturally and doesn’t require multiples when using nested if statements.

Check out the post for all the information and review their upgrade documentation.
