Download it, unpack it in a new directory.
Follow the instructions in the readme.html.

Basically it’s just about backing up the modifications you made to original WordPress files and then copying the new ones over the old ones and visiting www.yourdomain.com/blogdir/wp-admin/upgrade.php

It’s as simple as that 🙂
