Does the APC Mini work out of the box with Live 8.4.2?

I just bought an APC Mini, but I can't get it to work. I'm running Live Suite 8.4.2 Build 2013-10-17. The APC Mini is not listed in the Control Surface drop-down list (Preferences -> MIDI/Sync). Do I have to upgrade to Live 9 or are there any updates available for version 8.4.2 that will enable the APC Mini?

    To answer my own question, the APC Mini currently does NOT work with Live 8.4.2. The APC Mini requires a few Python scripts known as MIDI Remote Scripts in order to work. These are included with Live 9, but copying them to the Live 8 MIDI Remote Scripts folder won't work, likely because the API has changed. It should be possible to make the Live 9 scripts work in Live 8, though. Anyone up for the task?
