Adapting planetdiff to the 0.5 format should be trivial since it knows
very little about the relationships between the XML tags, just so long
as the dump uses ascending IDs for all the objects and they appear in
a logical "node, way, relationships" type structure. If you can point
me at a small example of a planet.osm dump from a 0.5 setup then I'll
have a go at porting it across.

The tool will not be able to give you a diff between 0.4 and 0.5
format files, (just in case anyone wonders why the diff file will be
missing when we transition between the 2 formats).
