The reason for this is that the update mechanism used to not offer updates to versions with a different major version (e.g. 0.8 to 1.0). We've removed that restriction in 0.9.9, so once you patch from 0.8 to 0.9 you can then update to 1.0.

If you run into problems, be sure to check the Known Issues page which we'll update as necessary.
