If by titles you mean text clips, they do somehow work a bit *if* you:

- load the 0.5 kdenlive file (you see garbage as the clips)
-  save to another (now 0.7) file, look for some elements in the xml 
file and remove them manually, then load the modified file in kdenlive 
againb (you now see the clips as INVALID)
- edit each text clip
- save the file again
- load it again

You get the texts back, but most of the rest of the clip is probably gone.
