upgrade to xampp 1.7

I would like to find a painless and easy way to upgrade my xampp version to 1.7.
Actually i care only for the mysql version.  I want to have 5 instead of 4.
Any ideas on how to do that easily and safely?

C:\xampp\mysql\data folder (if this is your xampp path) there are the databases upgrade and recopy if needed

xampp does have the installation options, where you just set mysql not to be installed,
one way or another, you can always push install of mysql v5 on the installed xampp
