Update Plugin/Theme from 1.7xxx to 1.8xxx

Hi was wondering if we can open a discussion on plugin upgrade from 1.7xxx to 1.8xxx?

I can't find much information out there on this subject the only decent bit of information that I found is  Updating plugins for Elgg 1.8 Linked Here! but I'm quite new to elgg and have just starting to learn php so i'm finding the information in the tutorial quite hard to understand.

It would be great to upgrade the bookmarks plugin from 1.7 to 1.8 as described in the above tutorial as a group of people who are intrested, perhaps documenting our findings here in the hope that other community members may find the information useful.

Look forward to your response!
