How to migrate preferences and add-on in Blender 2.8 and later when installing a new version?

Blender Asked by Ed Tate on September 14, 2020

How are settings and add-ons migrated in Blender 2.8 and later?

  1. In 2.7 the splash screen had an option to import old settings. This is not present in 2.8.
  2. This answer looks very dated – How would I import/export Blender's preferences?

If there is not a built in way to do this, are there scripts or add-ons for migration?
