The easiest and best way is to use the Backup [1] and Restore [2]
activities. They're still a bit rough on the UI side (help welcome!),
but have been carefully tested. You can exchange backups (i.e. up- and
downgrade) between any version of sugar-datastore, including the ones
with version support. Only older entries are overwritten, so it's safe
to restore an older backup over an already-filled Journal. You could
even distribute content that way.
