Basically, you just copy the files of the new version over the
existing one.  The major difference between the v2.0.devel releases
and the v2.0.beta is the skins handling code -- you'll want to
set $Skin = 'skindir'; instead of using $PageTemplateFmt or $PageSkinsFmt
which were used prior to 2.0.beta.  See PmWiki.LayoutBasics for details
on that.

And feel free to ask if you run into any other issues!
