You will be able to perform a rolling upgrade from 0.7.x to 0.8.  That is to say, you'll be
able to upgrade each node one at a time, mixing 0.7 and 0.8 nodes until the upgrade is complete.

If you're interested in exploring the CQL route, and if your time-line permits it, that's
what I would do.

Provided nothing crops up, we'll freeze on April 11th (2 weeks from yesterday), and release
on the week of May 9th (4 weeks later).
