I'm pretty sure there is an "upgrade" installation for a new version that would allow you to save all your apps, but I wouldn't recommend it. Its allways better to start fresh with a new operating system.

Upgrade installs have been compared to pulling a table cloth out from a bunch of dishes and then trying to feed a new one back under them without disturbing the dishes.
